VOL. XXI JANUARY, 1920 No. 1 


The letters printed below are from the Sloane Manuscripts, in 
the British Museum. There is some doubt as to whom they 
were written; Prof. Charles M. Andrews, in the Guide to Manu- 
script Materials for the History of the United States to 1783, pp. 51, 
69, lists them as letters to Sir Hans Sloane; but Mr. J. A. Herbert, 
assistant keeper of Mss., British Museum, writes that the Sloane 
Mss. contains besides the letters to Sir Hans Sloane, "some to 
Dr. Browne and Mr. Petiver;" The letters of Hannah Williams 
and Joseph Lord, have been indexed in Index to the Sloane Mss., 
E. J. L. Scott, as letters to James Petiver. An account of Petiver 
can be found in the Dictionary of National Biography. 

Hannah Williams who writes the first letter given here, was 
in South Carolina before 1692, for as Hannah English widow, she 
gets a warrant, dated October 25, 1692, for 500 acres of land near 
Stony Point 1 and in May, 1695, she had another warrant under 
the name of "Hannah English, alias Williams." She may have 
been the widow of Mathew English, who arrived here in February 
1670, and had a warrant for a town lot as late as 1689. 2 She was 
certainly the mother of Henroyda English, 3 and married William 
Williams between 1692 and 1694 Williams arrived with his wife 
and child 24 December, 1683. He made his will 2d November,

1710, proved 26th October, 1711, as William Williams of Carolina 
planter, and gives to his son-in-law Henroyda English, all of his 
estate, real and personal. Hannah Williams, widow to William 
Williams, declares the above will to have been made with her 
consent. 4 

The will of Charles Clarke, of Berkley County, dated November 
2, 1694, mentions Mrs. Mary Spragg, daughter of Mrs. Hannah 
Williams, to whom he leaves a house and lot, bounding on late 
belonging to Gov. Thomas Smith. Mentions also William 
Williams, gentleman, of Carolina, and leaves the remainder of his 
property to William Williams and Mrs. Mary Spragg. 5 

Mrs. Hannah Williams was buried December 16, 1722. 6 

Joseph Lord, who writes the other letters, was the pastor under 
whom the settlers from Dorchester Mass. immigrated to the place 
in South Carolina, which they afterwards named Dorchester also, 
"ocktober ye 20-95 was m ter Joseph Lord and Increase Sumner 
and William pratt were dismissed for ye gathering of A church 
for ye South corelina." 7 

Joseph Lord was of Charlestown, Mass. He had graduated at 
Harvard in the class of 1691, and at the time of his removal to 
Carolina, was teaching school, and studying theology in Dor- 
chester. He remained in South Carolina for twenty-five years, 
returning to Massachusetts in 1720, and on the 15th of June of 
that year was installed over the church at Chatham, where he 
remained until his death, June 6th. 1748. 8 t 

His sister, Abigail, married John Stevens, who was one of the 
leading men in the Dorchester settlement, and the ancestor of the 
present Stevens family in lower South Carolina. John Stevens 
probably came from New England also, since in his will, dated 
December 24, 1717, he directs that his sons Samuel and John 
"be brought up at the college in New England to good lerning 
. . . . and my brother Will Titcomb have care of them 
. . . .;" he also leaves a legacy to Joseph Lord Jr., upon con- 
dition that he also be sent to college.

"5. "Sir, 

Since that w c came by Pensylvania, Dated, Nov. 17, 1706. 
I have rec d . no Lett r from you. I sent a Lett r & a Box of Collec- 
tions by Capt. Gill Belcher, y e last year (y e Lett r . dated, Jan. 2, 
170J, w c I hope are come to hand. In yo r last y 1 I rec d ., you 
mention a Bill of a Bird w c was sent either by Mad m Williams or 
me, concerning w c I have since written you word, y*. I did not 
rememb r y* I sent you any such: but I call to mind y* I sent you 
y e Bill of a Garr-nsh, w c has sharp teeth set all along both sides: 
of w c I have also one now ready to send you, as I have also Divers 
oth 1 things w c I have collected. Anoth r sort of Tortoise, y n 
that w c you sent me y e figure of marked 76.4. I have y e shell of, 
w c I intend to send you e'er long. Here are divers sorts of y m ., 
tho' I don't often meet w th y m . The shell 71.8 & 71.9 is, I sup- 
pose, y* w c y e wood-snail carries on his back, & houses himself 
in. I have sent divers of y m , if I forget not, but perhaps they 
might be broken before they came at you, for I find y m very 
brittle. The Centipes, 74.3 is very like a worm w th us, w c , w n 
it dies, gathers almost into a circle as yo r figure represents: but 
w n y e worm is liveing, as it crawls, that side w re y e feet are seems 
flat. You figure a Cowry, 80.9. w c I don't know w t distinguishes 
from oth r shells: but yo r figure puts me in mind of a sort of Insect 
here, y tj is covered w th hair, between chestnut & ash colour; y e 
belly w re of is flat, & y e two sides run up to a ridge, w re is long r 
hair y n on y e rest of y e body, & carries some resemblance of hog's 
bristles. The insect is ab* an inch long, & ab*. half an inch broad 
at y e belly; & ab*. as deep from y e ridge to y e belly. The year 
before last came a neighbo r to me in great pain, & heart-sick, by 
being bitten by one of y m in y e neck; & would (for ought I know) 
have died, if suitable remedies both inward & outward, had not 
been applied. I had .observed y e insect before, & would have 
sent it to you, if I had known how. Yo r desire thereof prevailed 


w th me to make some remarks, in my last, on yo r Natural History 
of Brasile; w c (tho' I know my unskilfulness) I shall now proceed, 
as well as I can, a little farth r in Ch. 2. 87. The Partridge] That 
w c is here called a Partridge, we called a Quail in N. Engl d ., w c 
seems to be of y e colo r spoken of in this place: but we had a Par- 
tridge in N. Engl d . speckled w th white specks (if I forget not) 
w c was twice as big as this here in Carolina. 88. The Great Par- 
tridge] There was, in N. Engl d . another Fowl y* resembled y e 
Partridge, but larger (yet not so large as this great Partridge is 
Described) w c was called an Heath-hen. 93. American Sparrow] 
I suppose o r Red-bird to be a Sparrow; w c is y e same w th y e Vir- 
ginia Red-bird; & y re fore I need not describe it. Also w n I was a 
boy I caught another sort of red Sparrow; but have forgot wherein 
it differed from other sparrows, except in being Red. They were 
rare there. I have some notion y*. I then reckoned it of y e 
same species w th that w th . a red head : divers whereof had reddish 
Breasts too: whether it were those y*. were old r y n others, I can- 
not tell. 94. The Black Sparrow] we had in N. Engl d . a sparrow 
w th . a red spot on y e head; but y e body was of a greyish brown 
colo r . There is also a Sparrow here y*. is like that of N. England; 
only y e spot on y e head is not so red. I have heard them in N. 
Engl d . called Tom Tits. 95. The Blewish Sparrow] We have 
here a Sparrow y* is between blew & ash-colo r , whose bill is white, 
& his belly & y e outermost feath r on each side of his tail. 96-101. 
Divers Starlings are mentioned, & described. We have here two 
or three sorts of Back birds w c flock togeth r :y e male of one sort 
has a scarlet spot on each wing; & y e female is a dark grey almost 
black. 103. The Swallow] The male, here, is shineing black on 
his back, head, & breast; y e female more muddy, & on y e breast 
of a yellowish brown colo r . 108. The Throstle] That w c was called, 
in N. Engl d ., a Robin (but at Dorchest r in New England, a Field- 
fare) I have heard a Lancashire man call a Throstle: It comes 
hither in y e Wint r , but is not seen here in y e summ r . 110.111. 
We have a Turtle dove here, but wheth r y e leggs be red or white or 
eith r I can't now say; but I think y y are red. The New-England 
wild Pidgeon, is also a large sort of Turtle, w th red leggs: they 
come hith r sometimes in y e Wint r . 114-116. Woodpeck™] 
We have three or four sorts; some as large as Teal. Thus I end 
y e 2 d Chapt r of Birds, I cannot now proceed to any oth ra : only 


Ch. 9. 158. The Dysenterick Vomit] concerning this I w d enquire, 
is it not Ipecacuanha y*. you here intend? If it be, please to let 
me know wheth r you have had any of it from hence, & at what 
it's flow es & berries may likliest be sought. I put a small plant 
in y e Lett r , w c in y e Wint r had 5 or 6 Leaves together at y e top: 
please to let me know, by y e next opportunity, what is. Which 
is all, at present, from Sir, 

Yo r humble servant 
" Joseph Lord." 5"

"6. "Worthy Sir, 

Yo rs of Mar. 15, 17?{jr I received Jun. 30: wrapped up in a 
Monthly Mercury for January last, w th . some oth r Prints, w c is 
y e first News book or Pap r I ev r received, of all y* ev r you sent. 
You write you are glad to understand I received y e things y*. 
you sent last year, & I sh d have been glad I c d have given you to 
understand y* you were rightly informed; for I much regret y e 
loss of y e box & w* was in it. But not going to Charlestown my- 
self, I wrote to desire my friend, M r Samuel Eveleigh, to enquire 
of him ab* it; who sent me word y*. Capt. Belch r s d , there was 
indeed such a Box, but he had delivered it to some body, he c d 
not tell who; so I nev r saw it. I thought (as I had written to you) 
y*. he w d . have been more carefull than so. I received, indeed, 
y e lett r y*. gave an account of it, & w* was enclosed therein: & 
delivered to M r . Henchman's widow, y e lett r directed to him, but 
what you sent to him being put into my box, she came short as 
well as I. I don't know weth r yo r directing to me near stony 
point (from w c my habitation is 14 or 15 miles distant)mayn't 
be some disadvantage to me. M r Henchman (as Capt. Belch r 
informed you) died suddenly of an Apoplexy last Novemb r was 
twelve month. I have spoken w th his wife ab fc what he left in 
writeing, w c I had looked ov r while he was alive; & she promises 
to lend y m me to take copies of, w c I think to do, & send to you, 
when I can find opportunity: but multiplicity of business hind ra 


much y*. I w d of this nature. Before y e comeing of yo r form r 
by Capt. Belch r , w c I rec d . not till Jun. 16, 1709. tho' it were 
dated Nov. 30, 1708. I wrote a lett r to you, wherein I proceeded 
w th . my observations (such as they were) on yo r Natural History 
of Brasile, as far as y e end of y e second chapt r w c speaks of Birds: 
wherein also I informed you, y*. I sent no bill of a bird, yet I 
had sent y e bill of a Garr-fish, w c , perhaps, you might take for y e 
bill of a fowl; w c I mention here, because yo rs mentions nothing 
of that lett r , w c makes me suspect it's miscarriage. I have a 
small Box of Collections ready, & sh d have had more, but partly 
y e inconvenience of doing it w th out collecting-books, partly my 
much oth r necessary business, & partly y r confusions & distrac- 
tions of y e countrey, especially at this time, w c , tho' I would, 
I cannot altogeth r avoid all concern in, have been an hindrance 
to me; & w th all being at a great distance from Charlestown, I 
find great difficulty in getting thith r what I have to send, & many 
times lose y e opportunity of y e Ship, before I can obtain a con- 
veyance from hence to Charlstown. In that Box I have put such 
anoth r bill, besides many oth r things, w c I cannot now particularly 
enumerate. I w d have sent y e box now, but I have no oppor- 
tunity to send it to Charlstown. I w d . also have proceeded 
farth r in my observations upon yo r Natural History of Brasile, 
but time & oth r occasions, will not give leave. With thanks for 
w* you have sent, both w* I have received, & w* I have not, I 
take y e boldness to request you, if you can obtain y e seed of Sena 
of Alexandria, y* you will please to send me a little. I have 
Italian Sena growing; but whether it be y* it contains more lixivi- 
ous salt than y e oth r , or y* y e Air of y 3 countrey is more moist 
y n of oth r countrys w re Oriental Sena is kept or first dried, I 
cannot, w th all y e care I can use, prevent it's turning black in a 
little time. Here is a sort of bindweed w e I am apt to conceit 
may be Scammony; w c I believe I may formerly have sent you 
y e branches of. If I sh d . send you that, or any oth r usef ull drugg, 
if you will please to let me know it, you will much oblige, Sir, 

Yo r humble Serv*.

Catherine Gale (Dalcho, p. 124), and Hannah Beale, his sister, married the 
Hon. William Bull; she died in England about 1795, when she made her will. 
Othniel Beale, was the son of Capt. John Beale and Martha his wife, of Marble- 
head, New England; this is so stated on the tombstone of Capt. William Beale, 
late master of the Ship Prince of Wales; who died December 5, 1736, aged 38 
years. The stone was erected in the Circular (Congregational) Churchyard, 
by Capt. William Beale's brother, Othniel Beale. 

49 Evidently the account of the death of Dennis Rolle (this Magazine, vol. 
xx, p. 207) was an error, for he is mentioned as dining with Mrs. Manigault, 
November 29, 1767, and again here. Henry Laurens (Letter Bk. 1767-71, 
p. 77) mentions Rolle's coming from his village on St. John's River, to White 
Point on Ashley River, in a canoe, with one other person. The S. C. Gaz. 
and Country Jour, for January 16, 1770, mentions his arrival from East Florida, 
and his taking passage for London.

[With the above item, ends the earliest register. The second

in the Journal of the vestry, February 17, 1811, we find recorded 
that a number of the Record books are missing, especially the 
registers of births and baptisms, marriages and deaths between 
1759, 1760, and April 1790; the minutes of the vestry from August 
6, 1759, to May 1790 were also missing. The journal of the 
vestry seems to have never been found, but the register, from 1762 
to 1788, is still in existence, and also a later one which seems to 
begin about 1817.]

in a letter to Richard Oswald, dated 26 May, 1756, states: 

"Mr. Mayne we are told designs for England very soon, he seems 
very unhappily married to Miss Michie, but whether of the two 
is the agresser we can't pretend to say." 

Mr. Mayne and his wife separated, and after his death she 
married Henry Howarth, or Howorth. [Clerk of Court's unfiled 
papers, case reciting above separation, dated May 6, 1761] 

Henry Howarth was a lieutenant in the 15th Regiment in 1758 
(Mr. Ford's list of British Officers in America) and owned a tract 
of 1650 acres on the Altamaha river, which he sold to James 
Parsons, May 8, 1764. He then describes himself as Henry 
Howorth, gentleman, of Charlestown. (M. C. 0. book B No. 3, 
p. 386.) 

Mary, the other daughter of James Michie, married Charles 
Ogilvie, merchant, of London. (Ibid. C, No. 3, p. 11.0.) 




To the July, 1918 issue of this Magazine Judge Henry A. M. 
Smith contributed a "Note" entitled "Sir John Yeamans, An 
Historical Error," wherein he presented records proving that Sir 
John Yeamans did not vacate the governorship of South Caro- 
lina, retire to Barbadoes and die there, as stated by five historians 
of South Carolina from Hewat to McCrady, but died in South 
Carolina, while still holding the office of governor, between the 
3rd and 13th of August, 1674. 

The will of Col. John Godfrey, which is recorded in a volume of 
records of the Court of Ordinary of South Carolina, 1672-1692, in 
the office of the Historical Commission in Columbia furnishes 
additional evidence of the correctness of the conclusions presented 
by Judge Smith. Col. Godfrey bequeathed to his son Richard 
"my gould ring w ch I had at ye funerall of S r . Jn c . Yeamans". 
Col. Godfrey was present at the meeting of council August 3, 1674, 
presided over by Governor Yeamans and he was present at the 
meeting of August 13, 1674, whereat a successor to Sir John was 
chosen, so that he was necessarily in South Carolina for the funeral 
and the funeral was on the other hand, necessarily held in South

Hond Madam 

In my letter to my Father of the 10th Instant I informed him 
of my having been very ill, & that I then intended to set out for 
Bristol in a few Days. But finding myself very weak, & being 
satisfied that I was as well off here, as in any Part of England in 
Point of air Climate, and good Assistance, I altered my Intention, 
and determined to remain at this place, until I should be per- 
fectly recruited and though these English Fevers are exceedingly 



severe yet I have the satisfaction to inform you that I have, 
mended exceedingly, And though it was with difficulty I could 
walk across the Room Ten Days ago, I can now march a mile 
without Inconvenience. — I have met with great Attention and 
civility from several Persons here, particularly from Mr. Binford 
and Capt. Hale who carried Governor Lyttleton to Carolina: 
Otherwise, single and unknown as I was, when I first came here, 
I should have passed my Time very indifferently, considering how 
very ill I have been. Indeed to be sick in a strange Land, at a 
great Distance from one's Friends and Relations, is no desirable 
Situation; But by the assistance of Providence I have been en- 
abled to bear these Misfortunes with Patience and Resignation. — 
I am undetermined when I shall go to London. I have no very 
particular Call there, And it is the universal Opinion that a Re- 
establishment of my Health which is what I want, is not to be 
looked for there. Be not Surprised that I did not Write to you 
before; my Health would not permit. — As I recover, you may 
depend upon hearing oftener from, 

Your ever dutiful Son, 

P. Manigault.

I was in Hopes before this Time to have written to you, upon a 
Subject more agreeable to myself, at the same Time that it might 
give Pleasuer to you, But since I wrote last, I have not improved 
in my Health so fast as I expected. However, I thank God, I am 
so much mended, that I intend to set out for Bristol Wells this 
Afternoon, from whence I flatter myself I shall soon be able to 
give you better Accounts. You may depend upon it that I shall 
omit no opportunity that I know of, to mention my Situation to 
you or my Father. I therefore desire you will not be frited with 


any Reports, which upon these Occasions are generally magnified, 
As I grow better you will find my Letters grow longer. But for 
the Present, you must be contented with a short one, from 
Your dutiful Son

Hond Madam 

To receive at the same Time Letters from my Father, my 
Mother and three of my Children, was too much for my weak 
nerves. I sunk down upon the Couch, and was the whole Day 
before I could read them all. My whole Thoughts are so wrapped 
up in my Friends in Carolina that there is no pleasure, no Satis- 
faction for me in England. And I am continually making Com- 
parisons, which right or wrong, always and in Favour of my own 
Country. Indeed I have had little to please me since my arrival. 
Sickness and melancholy Thoughts, having been my only Portion. 
But by the Blessing of Providence I think I recover, though but 
slowly. I now am able to take a Walk Morning and Evening, 
besides a Ride betwixt Dinner and Breakfast, and have a good 
Appetite, which however am obliged to restrain, by a very strict 
Regimen. My Acquaintances all say I look better, But perhaps 
they flatter me. I do not think I shall be able to return to Caro- 
lina, this Winter, though it is my most ardent Wish so to do. 
The Physicians tell me I must not return so soon, and at the same 
Time say, that this Climate will by no means do for me during 
the Winter; so that I think of going to France, I mean the South 
Part of it, or Italy. — It is a most sensible Mortification to me to 
be absent from you so long, But my Health requires it and the 
Duty I owe to my Family makes it indispensably necessary. I 
would take this Opportunity of Writing to my little ones, but 
writing is at present a Difficult Thing to me. Assure them of my 


tenderest Affection, and tell them, that I have not forgot what I 
promised them, But that my Sickness and absence from London, 
has prevented me from sending them some little Token of my 
Regard. I have ordered six pounds of the best Hyson Tea from 
London to be sent to you, I beg you will sent Two pounds of it to 
Miss Nancy Wragg, I make an Apology to her for my not writing 
to her. Another Pound is intended for Mrs. Poaug; 1 who Poor 
Woman, ought to have these Things, though her hard Fortune 
has put it out of her Power to buy them. 

My Stay at this Place is uncertain, But I believe it may be 
about three Weeks longer. — Wherever I am, It shall ever be my 
greatest Satisfaction, to be 

Your most dutiful and affectionate Son 

P. Manigault. 
I believe Mr. Stead will send the Half Mourning for Nancy and 
Harriett by this Opportunity. 


Bristol Wells 11th September 1773 
Hond Madam 

I write this with some Expectation of its reaching Captn White 
before he leaves London as I would not miss an Opportunity of 
letting you know that I received your letter by the Eagle Packet. 
I should have been in London before now, but Mr. Stead having 
wrote me word that he and his Daughters would be here in a day 
or two, I wait for them and suppose, I shall go to London with 
them in a week or ten Days. 

I have no Opinion either of the Physician's, or the Waters of 
this Place. I am clear Goose Creek Water is full as good, and the 
Reputation of Bristol Wells, is cryed up by the Faculty in order 
to Draw Patients. I hold my Recovery so far, to be owing to 
the Goodness of the Air, a strict Regimen, and constant Exercise. 
I have lived Principally upon Milk for Eight Weeks past, and a 
little Fruit, allowing myself a little Broth once a Day for the 
first Month, and since that a Bit of White Meat. My Drink has

Elizabeth Wragg, who was the wife to Peter Manigault. 


been common Water, not the Hot Well Water, For I soon found, 
that the only Purpose that served, was to make me drowsy. In 
all this Time, I have not drank half a pint of Wine, or any other 
Spirits, not even small Beer, which in this Part of England is 
almost as Weak as Water. I am grown so [fond of this manner 
of Life, and find such good Effects from it, that I believe I never 
shall quit it as long as I live. 

1 leave you to imagine from your own Feelings, how happy I am 
to hear that my Children are well, and how that Happiness is 
increased, upon being informed that they behave well. I should 
have no Rest during my absence from them, were I not thoroughly 
satisfied with their Situation, that indeed, makes me easy, and 
yet I some times am apprehensive, that Nancy or Henney wear 
Stays, or some Thing like them. If they do, I shall look upon 
myself and them too, to be most unkindly treated, when I see the 
Bristol Women, as crooked as Cow's Horns, I cannot but lament 
that man, or rather Woman, should attempt to mend the works 
of God; But am not surprised that they should fail in the attempt, 
This is sufficient to shew my opinion about this Matter, and I 
hope you will not take it amis, for I have it so much to Heart, 
that I could not help mentioning it. I have been wanting to send 
the Children some little Present, But I find everything so ordinary 
at Bristol, that they must wait till I get to London. I went to a 
Fair two or three Days ago, on purpose to try to get some Trifles 
for them. But could not please myself. 

Your Niece Downes 2 has had her child inoculated, and it is 
recovered. I hear she is expected soon at Bath, and that Frank 

2 She was Mary Lejau, daughter of Col. Francis Lejau and Mary Ashby his 
wife, sister to Mrs. Anne Manigault. Mary Lejau married September 3, 1760, 
Richard Downes, an English Merchant, who had settled in South Carolina 
(this Magazine, vol. xx, p. 135). 

Richard Downes and his family went to England in May, 1773 (p. 64), 
and seem to have not returned. He died in England late in 1776. In his will 
dated July 3, 1776, proved January 3, 1777, he describes himself as being of the 
town of Ludlow, County of Salop (Shropshire) gentleman; mentions his wife 
Mary, his daughters Elizabeth and Ann, both underage; his nephew Richard, 
son of his brother Thomas Downes, late of Newton, county of Montgomery; 
nephews William, Edward, and Josiah, sons of his brother John Downes, late 
of Bishops Castle in County of Salop; nephew Richard Downes, of Wapping, 


Huger 3 who is lately returned from France, is to be with her. 
I fancy he wont much like the Company of such old-fashioned 
People as his Uncle and Aunt. 

We have had an extreme fine Summer in England, though I 
have not had Health to enjoy it. But the Weather begins now to 
be raw and windy. With all their Brags of the Healthiness of 
the Climate, I never saw so much sickness in my life. Whilst I 
was in Devonshire, People of all ages and Ranks, were dying every 
day of the Putrid sore Throat, the People looked as if they had 
all been at Ponpon, Fevers and Agues were so plenty, that in some 
Parishes not a Family escaped, and in Others not one of the 
Family. At Bristol, a Gentleman his Wife two Sons and a Maid 
Servant were buried in one Day: and the People as much frighted, 
as if there were no Mercy in Heaven. In the mean Time the 
Physicians, of which there are great Plenty, seemed to thrive 
upon the Spoil, and enjoy the Harvest. 

I have met with more of my Acquaintance here than I expected. 
Collo. Laurens staid with me three weeks. Mr. Izard came 
from London on Purpose to see me and staid here as many Days. 
Mrs. Beresford and her Daughters and Son were here for some 
Time, upon a Pretence to recover Mrs. Delancy 4 of a Cough, But 
in Fact to enjoy the Diversions of the Place. I have received the 
greatest Civilties from Mr. and Mrs. Brailsford, and indeed, to do 
Justice to the Inhabitants of the West of England, I must say 
that I have been treated with great Kindness, by all Ranks of 
People, especially during my Sickness. 

London; nephews John, William and Thomas Taylor, sons of his sister Sarah 
Taylor of the Brake, parish of , county of Herefore. 

Plantation and slaves at Stono, St. Paul's Parish, Province of South Caro-

Hond Madam 

After being three Months in England, you find that I am at 
last in London, where I expect very little Pleasure, as my Health 
is far from being reestablished, though mended, and the Season 
so far advanced that I must necessarily go into warmer Quarters. 
I am at present with Mr. Stead by his Invitation, and the Ease 
and Freedom I enjoy at his House, would make me happy if any- 
thing on the Side of the Water could do so, His Daughters are 
well bred young Women, especially Polly, who is not so reserved 
as her Sister, and of Course pleases more. His Son Ben is just 
taken from school, he is a great awkward young Fellow, and will 
take a Great Deal of polishing. In about a Fortnight I intend 
to quit England, and either go to Lisborne and Spain or to the 
South of France. I wait to hear from Blake who is at Paris 
before I determine. I could not resist the Temptation of going 
to a Play last Night: But I, did wrong, for the Trouble I had in 
getting in, occasioned by Weakness, more then counter-balanced, 
the Pleasure of the Play. I who know the want of Health, most 
ardently wish it may be granted to you, in greater Abundance 
than it has been, to 

Your ever dutiful Son,

From Falmouth 

Westminster 3d. November 1773. 
Dear Sir: 

Three days ago I put our Sick friend in mind, that a Mail for 
Carolina was to be made up this Evening and desired him to write 
to you which, I observed to him, would give more satisfaction 
to his friends than intelligence from any other person — He prom- 
ised to have a Letter ready, therefore I had no thought of writing 
by this Conveyance, before I made the Visit to him, from which 
I am just now returned, when Mr. Stead informed me that neither 
Mr. Manigault nor himself had wrote — I think it would be unkind 
to let the opportunity pass without a Line to you especially as 
there has happened a considerable alteration within the last 36 

About 8 or 9 days ago there was a most favourable appearance 
in Mr. Manigaults Case, as if the grand Cause of his Complaint 
was removed — Dr. Fothergill 5 was so pleased and surprised that 
he could not forbear expressing hopes of his perfect Recovery 
contrary to his former opinion — We all rejoiced at the prospect — 
but our pleasure received a sudden Check by a fainting fit and 
slight Convulsion which happened this night and left an Inflama- 
tion in the left Eye — the effect of which however was trifling and 
soon passed over. 

The day before yesterday I rode abroad with him, he was 
chearful and stronger than I could have expected, we alighted 

6 John Fothergill, M.D., 1712-1780; a well known English physician of the 
eighteenth century; he had family connections in America, and cooperated with 
Benjamin Franklin in 1774 in drawing up a scheme of reconciliation between 
Great Britain and the colonies which was never considered. (See Dictionary of 
National Biography) . 


under the Wall of Kensington Park on a Dry, smooth spot where 
he walked a good while to and fro in the Sunshine, then returned 
home amazingly well — in our Ride he told me of a troublesome 
boil of the Fistula class — which gave me some anxiety, but upon 
speaking to a very Skilful Surgeon of my acquaintance as a friend, 
he assured me that it was a most fortunate Circumstance and 
probably would prove the Drain through which other Complaints 
would be carried off and the patient Restored to health — this good 
Account was Confirmed in the same words by his Apothecary in 
my presence yesterday Morning — after this Doctor had left him. 
Mr. Manigault Eat and Drank heartily and not being able to 
Ride he desired me to walk with him — he leaned on my Arm and 
walked at least half a mile on the pavement — I left him very 
Chearful and disposed to a further Walk if the Soreness of the 
Boil would have permitted — 

This Morning proved Rainy which I knew would confine him 
to the House therefore I delayed my customary visit till Evening, 
when to my great sorrow, I found him in Bed in consequence of a 
second attack a few hours after I left him yesterday, by a Con- 
vulsion fit much stronger and more alarming than the former; 
He had been insensible several Hours, passed a painful Night and 
kept the Bed all this Day. doctor Fothergill was sent for while 
the Fit was on, ordered him a Vomit, which was forced down and 
by its operation relieved him — 

Miss Stead informed me, that the Doctor said, he would get 
the better of this attack and be as well he was before it happened — 
I must confess there is an ambiguity in this Speech which makes 
me uneasy. — This my Dear Sir is a plain Account of our friends 
case as it stood two hours ago — if Mr. Stead can write by Candle 
Light perhaps he may add some particulars which may have 
escaped me. 

We must wait with Patience for the Event, I still hope he will 
do well, in the mean time all your friends are exceedingly anxious 
on account of Mrs. Manigault and your self and everything in 
their power is done for the services of the poor Patient. 

I remain with the most affectionate regard

Westminster 12th November 1773 
Dear Sir, 

Two or three days after I had wrote you an unfavorable account 
under the 3d Inst, of our Dear Friend your Son, he recovered so 
fast as to amaze every body about him and we held it as certain 
that the great Cause of his Complaint was removed and that he 
would every day gain strength, and tho he wrote to you with 
some diffidence and Caution, he was sensible of the amendment 
and acknowledged that he was better than he had been since his 
arrival in England. Doctors and every one conceived in the 
same opinion — but alas! our Sunshine was soon overcast again — 
the day before yesterday he was seized by a Chilly fit which 
carried him to Bed — Yesterday he suffered a more violent shiver- 
ing than the former and to Day he has been extremely ill, much 
pain in his right side accompanied by Fever and difficulty of 
breathing — and at a certain short interval of Ease he intimated 
to me his apprehensions of approaching dissolution — The con- 
tinuance of Life he said was very uncertain therefore desired me 
to write a Codicil to his Will I replied I was not acquainted with 
the form for such an Instrument and would have delayed it till a 
proper hand could have been sent for, but he smiled and beconed 
me to do it — then added, "it would vex me to have it delayed" — 
as soon as it was wrote he executed and desired me to seal it up — 

This Codicil consists only of two Clauses, ordering that the 
Negro Woman Moll and her children shall be freed from Slavery 
immediately after his death; and his Man July, at the end of 
three Years from that period. — 

It is now nine o'Clock in the Evening I am just returned from 
Mr. Manigault's Bed side, he has been delirious for some hours 
and the Prognostics of Death were so strong when I left him that 
I have little hopes of rinding him alive to Morrow — I was ex- 
tremely loth to quit him but the Customs of this Country differ 
from those of our own. — 


As I may yet overtake Capt. Gunn, I thought it my Duty to 
devote a few minutes to apprize you of this unexpected change of 
Circumstances — I feel for Mrs. Manigault, for you and for the 
Dear Children, but My Dear Sir, as I know well your fortitude, I 
trouble you not with Consolatory arguments on this melancholy 
occasion such are unnecessary to the Man whose trust is in God — 
who has habituated himself to a Patient submission to all dis- 
pensations of our Wise and Merciful Creator; therefore I have 
only to add that I continue with the most affectionate regard. 
Your much obliged and obedt. Servant 

Henry Laurens. 
Dr. Fothergill supposes that Mr. Manigault 
took fresh Cold but I believe the expense 
through that Channel which they hoped 
would carry off his disorder has been too 
great for his weak frame.

The letter given below should have preceded those appearing 
in the last number of this Magazine; it was not available when 
that issue was printed. 

Being addressed to James Petiver, it settles the question as 
to whom the other letters were addressed. Petiver contributed 
to Philosophical Transactions, May, 1705 (no. 299, vol. 24, p. 
1951) "An Account of Animals and Shells sent from Carolina to 
Mr. James Petiver, F. R. S.;" most of the shells, he states, were 
received from "Madam Williams, a Gentlewoman." He also 
mentions several other people, either Carolinians, or having touch 
with that Province, such as Major Halstead; Mrs. Danson, 
daughter of Mr. John Archdale; Mr. Edmund Bohun, and "my 
curious Friend Mr. Job [sic] Lord;" but Madam Williams was the 
most frequent donor, and mention is made of reptils, lizards and 
insects lately sent by her. (See the January issue of this Magazine.)

19 The Governor, Lord Charles Montagu, who had returned to this Province, 
thoroughly out of humor with it and the governing bodies, (they being in sym- 
pathy with the men of the ''Liberty Tree" movements,) to show his further 
displeasure, struck upon the rather unfortunate plan of removing the seat of 
government from Charlestown to Beaufort, 75 miles distant. He possibly 
hoped that the inconvenience would keep some of the leading and troublesome 
members of the Commons away, but on the opening date, Thursday, October 
8, 37 of the representatives were assembled, only 19 being required to constitute 
a quorum of the Commons. Peter Manigault was rechosen to be their Speaker; 
every member but five were present, and none of them in a complying humor.

. . . ."The Death of Mrs. Manigault will probably put a stop to Mr. 
Manigaults voyage — no doubt it has thrown our good friends the old folks into 
the deepest affliction — they could not support themselves under the sudden 
stroke of parting with their son and Grandson — What is human Life? Where 
is Earthly happiness to be found? no where but in the present Moment, doing 
all the Good we can enjoying the Gifts of God with thankfulness — and holding 
ourselves ready to submit to the dispensations of Providence — Alas! Poor Mr. 
Manigault — He loved that Daughter dearly and she merited his dearest Love 
— He can bear misfortunes with Equanimity — but this stroke must have put 
his Philosophy and fortitude to the severest Trial." ....

46 Letter from Mary Stead — Addressed: Mrs. Manigault, Charles Town, 
South Carolina per Capt. Maitland. 

Dear Madam 

It is a long time since I had the pleasure of writing to you, & tho' it is always 
a great satisfaction to me, I should be glad that at present it were not in some 
measure owing to Papa's having both hands confined with the gout, which 
renders him unable to answer yours & Mr. Manigault's obliging letters. 

I wish I may be the first that acquaints you with Mr. Manigault's safe arrival 
in England the 30th last month; & since it is necessary you should know he has 
been ill, I am happy to have it in my power at the same time to tell you he is 
recovered. In his way to London between Plymouth & Exeter he was taken 
with a fever, & as there was no help to be had where he was, he was obliged with 
difficulty to be conveyed to Exeter: he is now under the care of an eminent 
Physician there. We have had the pleasure of two letters from him (one of 
which came yesterday) wherein he says he is much better & hopes to be in town 
in a fortnight. The fever has lain chiefly in his head, & weakened his Eyes a 
little but he nevertheless hopes to write to you by this same opportunity. I 
hope you will not conceive a bad opinion of this Country from this misfortune, 
but attribute it to the fatigue of a long voyage; & his own poor state of 
health : but when we get him amongst us, change of climate good care & advice

will make him send you such an account of his health, as I dare say you will not 
regret his coming over. 

I am endeavouring all I can to recollect him & continually asking Papa some- 
thing about him. I shall imagine when I see a son so tenderly beloved by you 
and Mr. Manigault that it is yourselves whom I behold; & guess Madam what 
a joy that would be to me; you whose goodness to us all Papa has so often told 
us of, you whom I respect & love so much without being acquainted with you ! 
I cannot but be happy to hear you continue to enjoy your health & hope you 
may much longer be a blessing to all you friends, & continue to love me, as I 
flatter myself you have always done for my father and mother's sake. 

Papa & Sister beg leave to join me in respectful Comps. to you & Mr. Mani- 

I am, Dear Madam, 

Your obliged hbl. servt.

respectable characters in this Province. — An excellent Understanding, improved 
by the most liberal Education, a benevolent Heart, a liberal Hand, and a most 
social Disposition, rendered him a very useful Member of the Communit}', 
and a most agreeable Companion. He was chosen Speaker of three successive 
Houses of Assembly of this Province, in which important Station his Talents 
so distinguished him that he always acquitted himself with Honour and to the 
entire satisfaction of his Constituents and Countrymen, and he was one of 
those Gentlemen to whose liberal Support we owe the Establishment of Mr. 
Egan's Brewery in this Town, now in such a state, as to rival our Northern 
Neighbors, and retain in this Province near 20,000 pounds a Year. We must 
not omit to mention that many Unfortunates in particular, enjoyed his Friend-

Collected by Anne King Gregorie 



This plantation, now owned by Mr. Ferdinand Gregorie and 
his son F. Gregorie, Jr., was part of a grant of 1300 acres on the 
south-east side of Seewee Sound which was made May 14, 1696, 
to Capt. George Dearsly; this tract afterwards became vested in 
Thomas Hamlin, who conveyed part to William Capers, and 
the remaining 982 acres, he conveyed January 1, 1704, to John 
Perry, Esq; then of the Island of Antigua, but formerly of the 
parish of Youghal, near Cork, in Ireland. This plantation was 
settled for John Perry by his agent in Carolina, John Abraham 
Motte. 1 

John Perry died in 1713, leaving all his plantations in South 
Carolina to his daughter Mary, who married in 1728, John Cle- 
land, of London; they removed to South Carolina about 1735, and 
on March 12, 1740, John Cleland and his wife Mary, conveyed 
the above 982 acres, then called "Yoeghall," to Captain George 
Benison of Christ Church Parish, the bounds being then given as, 
south-east partly on Captain Benison and partly on a great 
marsh; south-west partly on Capt. Thomas Boone; north-west 
partly on Mr. Barton, and on Capt. Thomas Boone. 

George Benison (who married first Elizabeth Capers, 1700- 
1733, and second, in 1735, Hannah Screven, widow) conveyed by 
deed of gift, December 9, 1741, 500 acres, part of the larger tract 
of 982 acres, called Youghall 2 to his son George Benison, Jr., the 
southward part bounding on Copahee Sound. 

Col. George Benison died June 9, 1748, leaving a will, dated 
September 15, 1747, in which he bequeaths to his son William

p. 85.

and his heirs the remaining 482 acres of the Youghall tract, giving 
the bounds as being south on Thomas Hamlin, west on Capt, 
Thomas Boone, northward on his son George Benison, and east 
on Copohee Sound; if William died without heirs, then Capt. 
Benison's youngest son Richard was to inherit, failing heirs of 
Richard, then all of his children, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth and 
Jane. Sarah had married John Parris in 1742, and Mary married 
William Gibbes in 1744. 

William Benison married Ann Brown in 1750, and died in 1751 
without issue (will). Richard died intestate about 1758; George 
Benison, Jr., born in 1722, married Elizabeth Bremar; he died 
intestate between October 1750 and February. 26, 1751, leaving 
sons William and Francis Bremar Benison (will of his wife Eliza- 
beth, dated April 7, 1751.) 

Sometime before February 3, 1755, the 482 acres had been con- 
veyed by Rawlins Lowndes, provost marshall, to Thomas Barks- 
dale, who was already a large land owner in Christ Church parish, 
who on that date, conveyed to his son Charles, who, before his 
death in 1757, seems to have acquired also the 500 acres belonging 
formerly to George Benison, Jr. 

Charles Barksdale, who had married in 1741, Maria Wingood, 
widow of Charvil Wingood, by his will, dated April 5, 1756, leaves 
all his lands to his sons Charles, Thomas and George. 

Thomas Barksdale (1745-1800) appears to be the next owner 
of the tract on which the burying ground is placed; he died in 
1800, leaving a will, which mentions his wife Mary, his son Thomas, 
and daughters Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah, and Sabina. 

Thomas, the son of the above Thomas, married Serena Maria 
Payne and died about 1850, leaving a will, in which he states that 
it would be a great gratification to have his plantation called 
Youghall continued in the family, it having been for more than a 
century in the Barksdale family; he especially provides for the 
holding of the family burial ground, with privilege of access. He 
bad no sons, and the plantation was conveyed by his wife Serena 
M. Barksdale, as executrix, to James Macbeth, April 26, 1852; 
James Macbeth having married Mary Vanderhorst Barksdale, 
the eldest daughter of Thomas and Serena. The acreage and 
bounds were changed several times in the various division during 
the Barksdale ownership. 


James Macbeth conveyed, to Philip Edward Porcher, January 
20, 1859, the plantation called "Oakland, formerly Youghall," so 
the name of Oakland was probably given to the plantation by 

The place was conveyed by Mr. Porcher to his daughter Mrs. 
Ferdinand Gregorie. 

The house probably built by the Benisons is old and interest- 
ing, with good lines and fine wood-work; the burying ground is 
surrounded by a good brick wall, some what in need of repair, 
and has a number of handsome tombstones, which have been 
damaged by the earthquake, and by neglect.

He was descended from respectable ancestors in New Jersey, 
among whom was one of the original twenty-four proprietors of 
that province. His father was 80 and his mother 50 years old at 
the time of his birth. His father who labored under the gout for 
sixty-years, transmitted that disorder to his son; but he by rigid 
and perhaps excessive temperance. . . . suffered little from it 
for several of the last years of his life; nevertheless, from the 
suddeness of his death, it is supposed, that at last it proved fatal, 
by an instantaneous attack on the brain. ... In November, 
1775, when hostilities commenced within the harbor of Charleston 
by the Cherokee and Tamer, armed vessels of the king of Great 
Britain firing on the provincial schooner Defence, commanded by 
capt. Tufts, Dr. Budd paddled himself in a canoe, from a wharf 
on the Bay, and boarded the Defence in the midst of the firing 
in order to give the aids of his profession to his countrymen, who 
were supposed to have suffered much from having been long 
exposed to the fire of two British vessels within gunshot. 

For several years the doctor had the honor of representing 
Charleston in the legislature of the state. ... In the year 
1780, when the British troops had nearly over ran the state, he 
renounced the comforts of home and the profits of his profession 
rather than return to his allegiance to the king of Great Britain, 
and as such had the honor of being exiled to St. Augustine, by 
Lord Cornwallis, as an incorrigible rebel against the royal govern- 
ment. (Saturday, Oct. 8, 1791.)

VOL. XXI JULY, 1920 No. 3 

By Gilbert P. Voigt 

"On Tuesday last [February 1st] arrived (Charlestown) 

Capt. Dunbarr from Rotterdam with above 200 Switzers out of 
the Canton of TOCKENBURGH [Toggenburg], 1 who are come to 
settle a Township on Savanna River called New Windsor, which 
was reserved for them upon a Petition to the Honorable the Gov- 
ernor and Council, granted some time since to one of their Com- 
missioners Sebastasian Zouberbuhler, who was sent here by them 
to look out for and pitch upon Land which he should think most 
convenient for planting of hemp and Flax, and which, 't is hoped 
in time will be of no small Advantage to this Province." 

So reads an item in the Gazette for January 29-February 5, 1737. 
This party of German-Swiss settlers had left their mountainous 
fatherland "in the beginning of August last" [1736] and had jour- 
neyed to Rotterdam, where they arrived "in September following" 
and "where they met with great hardships and a long detention 
from the Magistrates" of that city, the latter "pretending to oblige 
them to embark in a Dutch vessell when the said family s had al- 
ready contracted for their passage to Carolina in an English Ves- 
sell which occasioned a demurage of Six weeks and an expence of 

1 The Toggenburg is a portion of the present Canton of St. Gall. In the 
Saltzburger Nachrichten (vol. 3, p. 1044), Halle, 1740, these settlers are called 
"Switzers from the Canton of Appenzell." Cf. the "Petition" of Sebastian 
Zouberbuhler quoted below. 



several hundreds of pounds". 2 This delay had entailed a "Great 
Loss and Detriment" to these "familys" as well as to Sebastian 
Zouberbuhler and "his Friends". 3 The British "Minister at the 
Hague" had interceded for them with the result that they had 
"obtained leave to embark in the said English vessel." This they 
had done in November 1736 and had "sailed directly for Caro- 

In Sebastian Zouberbuhler's account of the migration of these 
Switzers, no mention is made of his having been sent to South 
Carolina by them for the purpose of selecting and securing a tract, 
or tracts, of land, as is stated in the Gazette. 4 It was "the 
Encouragements given to Colonel Purry for the settling a Town- 
ship upon the River Savanna" that led him to come to the Prov- 
ince in the year 1734 "at his own cost and charge — in hopes of 
meeting with the same encouragements in proposing to People 
another Township." He further states that "during his stay in 
South Carolina he travell'd all over the Country to take a view of 
the Lands," on which His Majesty had "Ordered the Townships 
to be laid out, and after several conferences held with the Council 
at Charles Town he ... . concluded a Contract with them 
signed the 17th July 1736 for settling a Township up the River 
Savanna on a Place formerly an Indian Village, then called Savanna 
Town (at present New Windsor) and for bringing over one hun- 
dred Protestant Familys in the space of one Year w th a farther 
promise to bring over two hundred Familys more after the first 
hundred be well settled and able to subsist themselves." 5 — "In 
pursuance of the said Contract " he writ to his friends at Appenzel 
to come away with as many familys as could be got ready accord- 
ingly they set out with about fifty Familys consisting of one hun-

pensel in Swiserland." (Transcripts in the Office of the Historical Commis- 
sion, vol. 18, p. 176 ff.) 

3 See page 95. 

4 He first proposed in 1735 to bring over 100 Protestant Swiss families and 
asked for Provisions, Cattle, Tools and free Warrants Plots and Grants. 
After having "spent some time in viewing several Places in consequence of this 
Petition and having been taken ill he found it impossible for him to transport 
to Carolina the said 100 Familys in the time he at first Proposed." (Tran- 
scripts, vol. XVIII, p. 267 ff.) 

6 He does state that " they are chiefly qualified for cultivating hamp and 
Flax, and the Lands of the said Township" are "very fitt for that purpose." 


dred and ninety two Persons (most able body'd young people and 
not above twenty children among them) .... Upon their 
arrival in Charles Town, the party encountered another hindrance 
and delay, so that it was not until that April they began the jour- 
ney to New Windsor. "After a great deal of Trouble," writes 
the Rev. Bartholomew Zouberbuhler from "Charlestown in South 
Carolina" April 9th, 1737, "to his Son Sebastian Zouberbuhler at 
London," 6 "The Government of South Carolina Resolved on the 
2d of April to assist the People with three Pettiagos for Trans- 
porting them and their Baggage hence to New Windsor. But 
that in case they wanted more The People should provide them 
at their own Charges. Whereupon the People who absolutely 
refused to be at the Charge of a Sufficient Number of Pettiagoes 
and Boats, came to me and told me that as I had promised them 
that they should be carried to the Place free of all Charges, so they 
desired that I might provide them with a sufficient Number of 
Pettiagoes and Boats. Thus I found myself obliged to hire One 
Pettiagoe, over and above those provided by the Government, 
for which I am to pay One Pistole per diem; as also Two Trading 
Boats to carry them and their Baggage from Purrysburgh up the 
River to New Windsor for the Pettiagoes cannot go higher than 
Purrysburgh. All which Expences fall upon my Account. And 
therefore you must see to find Ways and Means for discharging 
the said Expences." The journey from Charles Town to Purrys- 
burg lasted "four full Weeks," while the remaining distance from 
the latter point to New Windsor required "Seventeen days more." 7 
On the evening of the seventh of May, some of the party 8 arrived 
at Ebenezer, Ga., where they spent the night with the Saltzburg- 
ers, while almost a month later, June 4th, another boatload touched 
at this place. 9

Canton of Appenzell arrived at our settlement and spent the night here."

9 "Yesterday evening (i.e. June 4th) during our prayer-meeting, there 
arrived here from Purrysburg a boatful of Switzers, who likewise are journey- 
ing to their place near Savanna Town." Ibid., p. 1060. 


The emigration of these settlers of New Windsor is mentioned at 
some length in the "21stes Neujahrsblatt der Zuerchersichen Huelfs- 
gesellschajt;' 1821. 

"Enticed by these descriptions, 10 the number of emigrants soon 
increased. The town of Savannah (Savanna Town?) was popu- 
lated chiefly by Switzers, and later (sic!) Newbern, North Caro- 
lina, was likewise settled by our fellow-countrymen. It was 
observed that at that time several hundred families passed through 
the pass near Wallenburg into the Canton of Basel alone. One 
of the largest crowds, consisting of inhabitants of eastern Switzer- 
land, set out under the leadership of Governor Tobler, who had 
been dismissed from his position during the disturbances that 
took place in Appenzell at that time, and of a St. Gall preacher 
by the name of Zuberbuhler. 11 According to the reports of the 
latter, they had landed happily in Charlestown after a voyage of 
seven weeks. During the journey they had lost only two chil- 
dren out of two hundred and fifty persons. They had found 
enough fertile land and had been accorded a friendly reception 
everywhere. They had every reason to be sure of their future 
prosperity, provided that they should be industrious and orderly. 
He added that, in view of these facts, his son would return to St. 
Gall shortly and would bring fifty to sixty families more. The 
ordinances of the government prevented this; nevertheless Tobler 
and Zouberbuhler kept in touch with their fatherland for yet a 

10 "An exceedingly favorable description of those districts and of the ad- 
vantages of the settlements there (i.e. "South Carolina and Georgia"), with 
an appended map, by a native of Basel who was living there." "A consider- 
able edition" of this work, which "appeared" in 1711, "had been quickly 
sold." 2) A publication prepared by Col. John Pierre Purry, which is men- 
tioned as follows: "When toward the end of the year 1733, Purry made a 
journey to Switzerland, he brought with him several letters by different emi- 
grants, who all testified as to their great satisfaction with their new father- 
land. He himself, too, published some reports about Carolina. These, along 
with the afore-mentioned letters, were translated into German, under the 
title . . . . , printed, and scattered everywhere." 

11 "There is a man among them (i.e. the settlers of New Windsor, who spent 
the night of May 7th at Ebenezer), whom they call Governor. He is said 
to be very clever and of high repute by them. To some of the Saltzburgers 
he spoke in very high terms of the district, to which they are journeying and 

which he himself has already seen " {Saltzburger Nachrickten, 

Part 1, p. 1044.) 


long while, and the former, who was not unlearned in surveying 
and astronomy, dedicated to the states of Glarus, Appenzell and 
the three confederacies an almanac 12 for the year 1754, which con- 
tained a description of South Carolina and on whose title page he 
designated himself Justice of the Peace of Granville County. 
Meanwhile, not all of his former fellow- travelers (i.e. emigrants) 
had been in like measure satisfied with their lot. Several returned 
to Europe in a wretched state, and one of these, Wernhard Trachs- 
ler of Elgg published a short account of his journey, in which he 
complained bitterly of the hardships of the journey, the unfriend- 
liness of the climate and of the inhabitants, poor food and dwell- 
ings, diseases, wild people and wild animals, and dissuaded every- 
one from journeying thither. There also appeared with this report 
a lament of those who had remained behind in Carolina, which 
contained among other stanzas the following one: [Note. A prose 
translation is given.] 

"I journeyed from a free land, in which I lived honestly and 
honorably. I did not know of Carolina, where I am now a slave. 
I have no freedom at all. Great God, grant me Thy grace!" 

Hans Wernhard Trachsler's "short account of his journey," 
which has been mentioned in the foregoing paragraph, bore the 
following title: "Brief Description of a Journey to the Province of 
Carolina, situated in the West Indies, together with a Report of 
the Character, Nature, and Features of this Land by a Citizen 
who Recently Returned to his own Country." It was published 
in 1738 at Zurich and was "printed in Burckli's Printery." A 
translation which follows is complete save for a few words that 
are unintelligible in the written copy from which it was made. 

"Hans Wernhard Trachsler of Elgg, district of Zurich, formerly 
soldier in Imperial and Royal French service, had the desire to see 
Carolina and undertook to do it. Accordingly on the ninth of 
September, 1736 he took leave of his wife and children at Elgg 
and with eighty five gulden 13 cash journeyed to Holland alone. 
From Basel to Rotterdam it costs a person over twelve years of 
age eight gulden; from four to twelve years four gulden, boat pas- 
sage alone, without food and drink, besides baggage six gulden

A. S. Salley, Jr., have appeared in previous numbers of this magazine.

per hundred weight. In Rotterdam he met many persons who 
also intended to travel thither, from various places, especially 
Switzers from Appenzell, Pundten? (Graubuenden?) and Rhein- 
tal; among whom were Mr. Zuebli 14 of St. Gall, Pastor Zuberbueh- 
ler of Troguen, Governor Tobler of Herisau, and others. These 
men and all the rest present, making a company of 250 persons, 
entered into an agreement with the captain of a vessel before the 
voyage to the afore-mentioned province of Carolina. He under- 
took to carry them, and made them pay him for freight, care, and 
food, for a grown person five louisd'ors; for a person from three to 
twelve years old, two and a half louisd'ors; and for children under 
three, nothing. During this time there was apportioned to them, 
in messes of five persons, every twenty-four hours on Sundays 
and Tuesdays, dried beef, On Saturdays, pork; on Fridays, cod- 

14 In a letter of the Salzburger pastors, Boltzius and Gronau, dated July 
29, 1737, mention is made of Mr. Zueblin, who had "recently brought" them 
"the letters and the gift," and who had been sick in Purrysburg "almost as 
long as he" had been "in the land." From the diary of these pastors we learn 
that Mr. Zueblin of Purrysburg had two brothers who had desired to be taken 
in at Ebenezer. The date of this item is Dec. 19, 1737. The entry for Feb. 
25, 1736 contains the information that two brothers named "Ziebely" had been 
supplied with provisions "from the store-house in Savannah" at the request 
of the pastors, when "some time ago" they had been "in very great want of" 
these and had been "forsaken by everybody." Their parents in St. Gall were 
said to be "wealthy people," and they wished to "pay back everything with 
joy in due time." "Both brothers fear God," we are told, "and make use of 
our (the Saltzburger pastors') ministry, as often as we come to Purrysburg." 
From the entry of November 8, 1742, we learn that Mr. David Zuebli had a 

son in Switzerland, who was studying theology "The father 

should have liked to have had him become the German preacher in Purrys- 
burg; but because the number of the German people is becoming continually 
smaller and he himself no longer has a great desire to remain there, therefore 
he desires that the German people in Savannah might call him to be their 
preacher." We are further informed (February 8, 1743) that "Mr. Zuebli 
from Purrysburg" had written to one of the pastors "that he wished to keep 
the most of his negroes only a few days longer and to release himself from 
this burden (or charge) and to change his manner of life according to God's 
apparent direction." Again (February 8, 1743) we are told that "Mr. 
Zuebli" had "bought, on his arrival in the land, a plantation of two hundred 
acres on the Savannah River, but" that he had "long ago been forced by the 
frequent flooding, which now for two years had continued longer than for- 
merly, to abandon it and" had "rented another in the interior that" was "very 
remote (isolated)." [These items are taken from the Saltzburger Nachrichien.] 


fish; on other days, boiled rice, peas, and barley together with a 
quart of water and beer and a piece of zwieback per head. Chil- 
dren under three, as they paid no passage, were counted to their 
parents. But this supply of food was not sufficient for them, 
they being people not accustomed to voyages, so that every one had 
to try at times to buy something from the ship-steward out of his 
own pocket. Moreover, they had to lie on the hard floor without 
any beds, and the sea caused them many sick days and fever. 
After twelve weeks and three days they finally arrived in Caro- 
lina, and they disembarked in the chief city, Charleston, situated 
in South Carolina, and were lodged in two shacks. There they 
caused a petition to be presented to the English Council and the 
Governor that they, like those who had arrived before them, 
might receive the provision and support for the first year, as was 
promised to the aforenamed Pastor Zuberbuehler's son in Caro- 
lina and even in London; but they were refused and silenced, inas- 
much as His Royal Majesty of England has issued an order not 
to advance or give anything more to anybody. 15 Hereupon they 
found themselves in the most extreme poverty; they had to eat 
themselves, as it were; home and hope they had none; work they 
did not find. They scattered here and there. Some remained 
in Charlestown; others went to Purrysburg and Orangeburg, 
Congaree, Savannah (Savannah Town, i. e. New Windsor?) and 
other places, where they were assigned to woodland and raw fields; 
others, and especially the women who had lost their husbands on 
the voyage, begged. 16 Trachsler, for his part, found some credit 

15 The Minutes of Council for February 4, 1737/8 contain the reply of the 
Council to a message from the House, in which reply we find the following 
words: " .... the late Lieut*. Governor by the advice of His Majesty's 
Council, with proper prudence and Caution near a Year Agoe Caused an Ad- 
vertizement to be Published and Continued in the Weekly Gazette giving 
Notice of the Expiration of that Law (i.e., the Appropriation Law) and of 
the Insufficiently of the Fund to provide for the poor Protestants then 
Arrived" .... 

16 On February 3, 1737/8 a message was sent by the House to the Council 
in which we find the following reference to the plight of some newly arrived 
immigrants: " . . . . Especially as we have Such frequent Complaints 
that for want of some Provision being made for these people (Irish Protes-

and began to butcher, and rented in Charlestown a shed or shanty 
made of boards for 20 Batzen of our money per week. Some 
time afterwards, when Spain made some moves looking to an 
invasion of the country and on this account the fortresses were 
occupied, he received from the said Council in Charlestown the 
favor to be placed in the fortress of Port Royal, which lies in the 
direction of Georgia, as sergeant with fifty men from the best 
people under the command of a lieutenant from Prussia. Here 
they had enough to eat, but after four months were paid off and 
discharged. Then he went to Orangeburg and tried to support 
himself again with butchering and soap-boiling, which he had 
learned years before in France. He also entered into an agree- 
ment with a captain, to whom he offered to teach soap-boiling, for 
four years for a half of the profits. But he was unable from the 
very beginning to come to any accounting with the gentleman. 
Therefore he applied to the magistrate and there had himself 
released from the contract. As he now had some money on 
hand, he again hired passage with it on a ship and sailed back to 
Holland, taking with him the wife of a smith in Troguen. Only 
a few days ago he returned to his children in Elgg. 

All persons who get to Rotterdam will be transported to this 
province. Such as are provided with money can engage passage 
themselves on the ships, which sail at intervals. But such as are 
not in a condition to do this will be taken charge of and sent over 
by the Messrs. Hoppen, 17 prominent merchants there, (a few 
unintelligible words) in the manner described above, except that 
those who live only by grace fare even somewhat worse in the 
treatment over the sea and in this province. To those who pay 
the ship-passage out of their own money, immediately a portion 
of land, thirty acres 18 to the head, is apportioned, but without 

Nusance to the Present Inhabitant of the Town." Relief and action was 
urged. The Council replied on the following day (cf. note on preceding page) 
and recommended that the "poor Protestants" "Enter into Service without 
more loss of time." 

17 In a pamphlet entitled " Umstaendliche Nachricht vor diejenigen, welche 
auf eine sichere Weise nach S. C. America, Ziehen wollen," Speyer, 1741, there 
is a copy of a contract drawn up between some emigrants to South Carolina 
and the firm of "Archibald Isaac Zachariah Hope, Merchants in Rotterdam." 
The date of this contract is April 5, 1741. 

18 This should be fifty instead of thirty acres. 


house, barn, victuals nor implements for the cultivation of this 
land: but they are simply assigned to the apportioned piece of 
land thus bare of all things. It is true that in the beginning the 
provision in victuals and other things was advanced to the Euro- 
peans who arrived in this land for the first year; but in the year 
1736 His Majesty of England issued a manifest that no advance 
should any more be given to any stranger. But the others, who 
are taken charge of by the aforenamed Messrs. Hoppen in Rotter- 
dam, are sold to the farmers settled there for four years. They 
serve for food and clothing, but must do such work as is too severe 
for them in this hot country and uses the most of them up. This 
South Carolina is a very hot country. Already in March the 
heat is as great as in the middle of the summer in Switzerland. 
In December there is sometimes wet and cold weather, but not 
enough to freeze at this time. But especially in the approaching 
spring, often so sharp a wind blows that one needs the best cloth- 
ing if one wishes to work outdoors. Around the towns and along 
the two rivers the land is very fertile, so that anything can be 
planted in the gardens; but there are no grape-vines. Every 
acre around there is worth 200 gulden. 

But the land which is distant from the rivers and which is dis- 
tributed to the new-comers, is hot beyond all measure, and if one 
wishes to plant anything at all on it, especially in the beginning 
when it must be cleared, it requires strong hand-work. This 
land is full of wild men who live in the woods stark naked, but 
who do no harm to other people. They do nothing but shoot 
wild animals, bears, wolves and deer and bring their skins and 
pelts to the towns to sell them and exchange them for victuals. 
Besides, there are very many negroes who have been sold thither 
as slaves. These people are worth a high price, because they are 
much more able to do the work and much cheaper to keep in 
food and drink than the Europeans. As to divine service, there 
are neither ministers nor churches anywhere except in the chief 
city Charlestown, where there is a French Church. 19 Neither 
does one find Bibles or other books for sale. In Orangeburg, a

time there were six churches in Charlestown alone. 


goldsmith, Gietzendanner of Liechtenstaeg, 20 has lately set up as 
a pastor and preached every Sunday in an open place near to his 
own cottage. Children as old as nine years were brought to him 
for the administration of baptism, and people came a distance of 
forty English miles (one of which makes half an hour) to his preach- 
ing. On account of the vehement heat and the bad food and drink, 
everybody who comes to this country must endure severe dis- 
eases, especially fevers, from which the most die. One sees no 
money consisting of silver and gold, but only paper, on which the 
English coat of arms and the value are printed. There are notes 
of four, two and one louisd'ors, an English pound containing ten 
batzen of our money, and so on down to a half crown, which is 
equal to ten kreutzer. If anyone is fortunate enough to obtain 
a loan, he must pay ten per cent interest per year to Englishmen 
for it, and fifteen per cent to the Jews, who have also invaded 
this country. In the government as in all other matters there is 
not the least order. Everybody can trade, work and undertake 
whatever he wishes to. But crimes, especially theft, are severely 
punished. Everything produced by handiwork brings a high 
price; clothing and agricultural implements can scarcely be had. 
Tools necessary for work and cultivating the ground are worth 
very much: a saw is sold for nine English pounds, a shovel or a 
hoe for thirty batzen, an axe for twenty batzen, a hand-mill for 
nine pennies, and so forth. This country, like other countries, 
is subject to blessed as well as unfruitful years; but all provisions 
are always dear. A hundred weight of rice is worth four to five 
Carolina pounds, a loaf of bread half a pound, a pound of lean 
beef a batzen (altogether the cattle in this country is small, and 
the largest ox will weigh not more than four and a half hundred 
weight; it is not stall-fed, but roams wild in the woods), a pound 
of tallow ten kreutzer; one pound of sea-fish ten kreutzer, and so 

20 In the Gazette for March 5-12 and 19-26, 1737 appeared the following 

"Jno. Ulrich Giessendaner Silversmith gives Notice, that he makes & 
mends all sorts of small work, designs and engraves Seals, Coats of Arms &c. 
in Gold, Silver, Copper or Pewter. He lives on the Green by the Church in 
the House of Mrs. Hammerton. He likewise sells a Balsamus Aromaticus 
good for the head and tooth-ache and other Infirmities, also an excellent and 
comfortable Balsam of Mace." 


forth. On account of the great heat, there is no fruit, figs and the 
like. The drink consists of bad water or in a mixture of brandy, 
sugar, lemon and water, which is called punch there and is dear. 
A quart is sold for twenty kreutzer. But it is quite unheal thful 
and unadapted to the nature of Europeans. Wine from Spain 
is also brought into the country, but on account of the high price 
only the rich can afford it. Only in and around the towns are 
houses to be found, but in the country only shacks or shanties 
made of boards and covered with brush, in which the people stay. 
All that these are able to plant on the land given to them, and that 
too with the most laborious work, consists of Indian corn, of which 
they make cakes, bake them at the fire and so nourish themselves. 
But the poor get nothing all the year round for their sustenance 
but potatoes, which they dig out of the ground themselves. 
With these alone they have to keep themselves alive, and they see 
neither bread, meat, nor anything else. 

This province of South Carolina, here described, is four hundred 
miles distant from Pennsylvania. But there, according to reports, 
life is much more miserable and toilsome. This deponent, Hans 
Wernhard Trachsler, met some of the people who disembarked 
there, who were in extreme poverty and could not sufficiently 
lament their misery, so that one even broke out into this lamen- 
tation: 'It is better to die upon the ocean than to come into West 
India and perish there.' For not a few die from misery and sorrow 
upon the almost endless open sea and find a grave in the wild waves 
of the desolate ocean. Therefore one cannot sufficiently thank 
God when he gets back healthy into his dear fatherland and into 
his old home, especially as it is very difficult to get free and away 
again; for it must be known that if one wishes to leave the country 
again, he must first give notice at the state chancellory in Caro- 
lina and have his name called out for three weeks and three days 
in order that if anybody has any claims against him, he may report 
and make everything right before his departure. But the princi- 
pal thing is that they are not willing to let people out, because the 
more populous the country is, the safer they feel; among other 
things also on account of the pests, like snakes and crocodiles, of 
which there is a multitude. Finally, one of the chief hindrances 
to getting away is the overwhelming costs which are demanded of 
those who return. For instance, the deponent and Anna Maria 


Hugendobler, with three children, had to give 162 gulden for pas- 
sage as far as London, Gabrief SchaerTer, however, had to pay 125 
gulden for himself alone, because they had to give him more 
serviceable food; although the journey is also long and one reckons 
from Carolina to Rotterdam alone 2200 hours on the water, in 
which there is many a bitterly sad moment, to which the person 
mentioned at the outset will testify from his own experience to 
the end of his days."

"His Corps was attended to the Grave by a very considerable 
Number of the Inhabitants, who were indeed real Mourners. 
The Characters of Husband, Parent and Relation, in which he 
stood foremost may be paralelled, but cannot be exceeded. His 
publick Character rendered him generally known, his private 
virtues as unanimously respected. He lived in constant prac- 
tice of every Christian duty and was a striking example of that 
vivacity and cheerfullness which distinguishes the man void of 
offence. He esteemed every good character and in return was 
beloved by all. His Charity was distinguished by a prudent 
application to deserving objects — And it may well with great 
truth and justice be said, that in him the Province has lost an 
excellent citizen, and the poor a most generous benefactor."

Mottt Alston &eat> 

Motte Alston Read became a member of the South Carolina 
Historical Society in 1909 and was chosen as a curator in 1912. 

He was born June 20, 1872, and was the eldest son of William 
Melvin Read of Virginia by his wife Jane Ladson Alston, daughter 
of Mr. Jacob Motte Alston of South Carolina. 

He completed his college education at Harvard University where 
he received the degree of Bachelor of Science in 1893. His sub- 
sequent scientific work can be best told by a quotation from the 
News and Courier (August 6, 1914) telling of his election to the 
chair of Biology in the College of Charleston, which the condition 
of his health prevented him from ever filling: 

"He continued his scientific work in Munich during several 
years in the later nineties and in 1901 was elected to the chair of 
Physiography in Harvard University. In 1902 he was again in 
Europe, engaged in palaeontological faunal studies in the Tyrol, 
and returning to Harvard in the fall was elected, while still hold- 
ing the Harvard Chair, to the instructorship in Physiography in 
RadclhTe College and in the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology. Prof. Read was at various times vice president of the 
Harvard Natural History Society, a member of the Boston Nat- 
ural History Society, field assistant in the United States Geo- 
logical Survey, member of the International Congresses of Geolo- 
gists, which met in Washington in 1891, in Russia in 1897, and in 
Paris in 1900. He is also a member of the German Alpine Verein, 
and a charter member of the Harvard Traveller's Club, devoted 
to furthering scientific travel. The principal subjects of his re- 
search have been palaeontology of the Amphibia and Reptilia, 
the geographical distribution of life and lands past and present, 
and eugenics. His chief publication is Gastropods of the Volcanic 
Tuff of the Seisser Alp, Tirol, Triassic." 

Mr. Read was also an earnest student of history, principally in 
its economic and racial development. For he was a careful 
observer of heredity both in its narrower or personal aspect and 
in its broader sense, as involving the development or decay of 



groups of individuals, connected by blood or descent, called loosely 
tribes, nations, and races. 

This it was that gave the impulse to his historical studies of the 
older families of Virginia and the Carolinas, and led to his con- 
tinued interest in this Society, and its publications. And it is a 
distinct loss that the increasing innrmity produced by his cruel 
disease prevented his completing the work he had in hand for 
publication in this magazine. This disease it was which in the 
full vigour of manhood broke off his professional career and com- 
pelled his retirement to his Texan ranch in the hope that an active 
out-of-door life might assist his powers of resistance. Finding 
this hope a vain one, he made his home in Charleston and resigned 
himself to the sedentary life of his library, where his mental 
activities in the acquirement and arrangement of knowledge con- 
tinued to his death, even though his own productiveness became 
daily more limited by pain and loss of physical powers. 

And yet visits to this library were constant pleasures to his 
friends, for they found in it a fortitude which allowed no place to 
regrets for lost opportunities and no complaints over present dis- 
abilities. But in place of these they met an active interest in 
current events, a keen intelligence, a superb memory, and a 
readiness to discuss the great movements of the intellectual world 
whether in science, in history, or in art. For among his acquire- 
ments was a knowledge and developed taste in the last, which 
made his opinions authoritative among connoisseurs, and enabled 
him to form for his own pleasure a fine collection of Japanese 
Color Prints. 

He died at his residence No. 8 Atlantic Street on July 12, 1920.

Contributed by Mabel L. Webber 

The following rather amusing and unusual bill of complaint was 
copied from a paper found among some unindexed documents in 
the office of the Clerk of Court, Charleston, S. C. 

Most of the people mentioned were prominent at that period; 
Thomas Cary and John Danson were sons-in-law of Governor 
Archdale, Cary being at one time a member of Council (McCrady, 
Vol. 1). George Dearlsey was a member of Council in 1697, and 
a large land owner, had several holdings in Christ Church parish 
(see page 73); he made his will June 20, 1702, and mentions 
Patrick Logan, son of George Logan Esq; to whom he leaves 
negroes, and two of four lots in Charles Town purchased of John 
Barksdale, George Logan the brother of Patrick to inherit in case 
Patrick die; leaves to Susannah Cornish household goods and 
plantation (goods?) whatsoever in Carolina, two negroes and 200 
acres at Boowatt purchased of John Nix; to her daughter Ann, 
under age, four negroes; To Edward, son of Susannah Turlow, four 
negroes and one town lot, and plantation of 400 acres at Wap- 
petaw; to his sister Elizabeth Quelch and her heirs, plantation 
where he lived, with all buildings, stock and 10 negroes. To 
friend George Logan Esq; horse and negro boy Buckingham, said 
George Logan to be sole executor. 

The fourth part of the briganteen Mayflower which he owns to 
be sold on her return to Carolina to pay for the finishing of the 



ship he is now building for his father Richard Dearsley in Bar- 
badoes, but if the said vessell make a profitable voyage, then after 
debts are paid, one half to father Richard Dearsley, Esq; and in 
case of his death to brother and sisters in law equally divided; 
one fourth to sister Elizabeth Quelch and the other to be divided 
equally between Susannah Cornish and her daughter and Susannah 
Turlow's son Edward. 

Witnesses were Robert Dacres, Wm. Allen, John Morgan and 
Anth'y Mathews; Examined April 20, 1704 (or 9?) and recorded 
July 6, 1719. (Probate Court 1711-18, page 60.) 

George Hearne was a bondsman for Frances Betterson, widow 
of William Betterson, May 9, 1705 (This Magazine, vol. xii, 213). 

Robert Dacres "late of the Province of Carolina, bachelor" 
died intestate; administration was granted 28 April, 1707 to 
Robert Johnson, Esq; attorney for Hon. Thos. Broughton, Dame 
Mary Dacres, mother of the defunct, first renouncing (Ibid vol. 
iv, 236).

Humbly Complaining Sheweth unto ye Hon'bls Your Orator 
Robert Dacres of Carolina Gent. That on or about the thirteenth 
day of January 1698/9 Your Orator being on board of a Ship to 
take leave of Some ffriends, And being there Overtaken in drinke 
coming home One George Hearne came into Comp a . w th . Your 
Orator and Invited him to his the sd. Hearne's house, And there 
perceiving Yr Orator's Disorder, He took that Opportunity to 
tempt Yr. Orator to play, And so wone of Yr. Orator the Summe 
of ffivty-Nine pounds, and accordingly gott Yr. Orator being So 
in drinke to Sign a Note or bill Under his hand to pay the Sd. 
Hearne the Said summe of ffivety Nine pounds, And in Some few 
days afterwards, he the sd. Hearne demanded the sd. Summ of 
ffivety Nine pounds of Yr. Orator, But your Orator not remember- 
that he was in the Comp a . of the sd Hearne, Or had played with 


him Or had given any Note or bill for the sd Summ of ffivety 
Nine pounds refused the payment of the Same, Whereupon upon 
the sd Hearne Relating how he had won moneys of yr Orator to 
Coll n Thomas Cary & Mr. John Danson of Carolina Merch'ts: 
They the sd Cary and Danson acquainting yr Orator with the 
Same, did propose to yr Orator that if he would Venture five 
pounds they would play off the sd Note for £59: — wth the said 
Hearne, And win the Same back again for yr Orator, And take up 
yr Orator's Note, Which Yr Orator consenting to, and Engaging 
to pay the sd Cary & Danson — if they Lost so farr as five pounds 
Upon this Consideration, That what they wone of the sd Hearne, 
it should be to the discharging of yr Orators Note of £59 — as 
aforesaid, And upon this Consideration the sd Cary & Danson 
played wth the sd Hearne, and wonn of him to ye ffule Value of 
£59 in discharge of yr Orators Note, togeather with more Monys 
for thenselves, But the sd Cary & Danson after having wonn of 
the sd. Hearne as aforesaid, pretended to yr. Orator that they 
could nott gett his Note for the sd Summ of £59; from the sd 
Hearne, Excepting yr Orator (for a Colour) would give a Note 
Either to ye sd. Cary or Danson for the Summ of £59; — And 
accordingly the sd. Cary drew a bill for ffivety Nine pounds 
payab'le to the sd Danson Who both of them promised yr. Orator 
it should not be made use of against him, but that the same should 
be given up to yr Orator when desired, And yr Orator confiding 
in the Promises of the sd Cary & Danson, accordingly Signed 
the same, and had the Note for £59 pay ble to the sd. Hearne 
delivered to him, But so it is may it please yr Hon", that the sd 
Danson being bound on a Voyage to England on Or about the 
Latter End of, the Sd. Month of ffebruary or beginning of March 
1698/9 Yr Orator desired y sd. Danson to give him up the sd 
Note for £59: so Obtained as aforesaid, According to his the sd 
Danson and Cary's Promises to ye sd Orator. And the sd. Dar- 
son replyed that he had put the sd Note into the hands of the sd 
Coll n Cary and further say'd that the said Cary would deliver 
yr. Orat r the said Note when desired, When in truth the said 
Darson had not delivered the sd Note to the sd Cary, but had 
delivered the syme to Maj r . George Dearsly with Power and 
Directions to put sd Note in Suite, against yr Orator, as soon as 
he the sd Danson was gone off, Which the sd. Maj r . Dearsley 


Accordingly did, in the Name of the sd. Danson by causing Writts 
to be prosecuted against yr Orator, who was arrested upon the 
Same on or about the 22 th day of March 1699/00 — in an action 
of Debt for ffivety Nine pounds, And a Declaration upon the 
Same filed against yr. Orator the fifth day of Aprill 1699 in the 
Court of Common Please of this Province, as by the Records of 
the same doth appear, all which practices of the sd Danson are 
Contrary to all Rights, Equity, and good Conscience, In tender 
Consideration whereof, And for as much as yr Orator is not reliev- 
eable in the promises by the Strict Rules of the Common Law, but 
is altogether remediless in the same, Unless by the Aid of this 
Hon rble . Court, yr. Orator may have A Particular discovery 
thereof by the Corporable Oaths of the sd John Danson Thomas 
Cary, and yr. sd. George Hearne, who are well known and are 
Satisfied of the Truth of all and Singular the promises before 
Sett forth, who when they doe answer to these Upon Oath, must

Charleston Nov r : 5th: 1794 
Dear S— r : 

By Strong we had expected the pleasure of Mrs. Izard's Com- 
pany; but as she has preferred the Journey by Land I have agree- 
able to your desire written to M r ; Chesnutt, & I have no doubt 
but that he will pay her every attention when she arrives at Cam- 
den, and we still flatter ourselves we shall be favoured with her 
Company when she comes to Charleston — 

From one of her letters to Mrs. Pinckney I find I have not 
received one or two of your Letters, and that one of mine has 
miscarried — In that I informed you that Mr. Hamilton 1 the Ship 
Builder did not chuse to be concerned in the Building of a Frigate; 
that Mr. Pritchard 2 thought it might be done here, and that Capt n . 
George 3 said he would undertake it; I also inclosed you Copies of 
Capt. Mayrant's 4 Commission and Certificates, and which I also 
now inclose, that if more Frigates should be put into Commission 
he may be in the way of promotion — a Letter from the Secretary 
of War to me has also miscarried, as in a Letter of his to the Gov- 
ernor, he directs him to cause a certain vessel to be delivered up 
to the original owners, and mentions to him "that if he did not 
chuse to execute the order I could, and that a copy of the order 
and of the Letter was sent to me for that purpose — " 

This Letter the Governor shewed to Judge Bee and to Mr. 
Holmes the Collector, and at the same time caused the vessel to 
be delivered up, but no copy of it, or of the order ever came to 
me — 

1 David Hamilton; he married in 1774, Elizabeth Reynolds, stepdaughter 
to the elder Paul Pritchard. 

2 Probably Wm. Pritchard; Paul Pritchard the elder, and first shipbuilder 
here of that name, was dead by this date. 

3 James George, a sea captain. 

4 John Mayrant. 



The Letters I received from the Secretary at War were previous 
to this, and had no allusion to the vessel which was the subject 
of this Letter — I wish I could discover the rascals who amuse them- 
selves in interrupting my Correspondence — By Capt. Strong I 
send a small Box with two articles sent in it, to be altered agree- 
able to the paper in the Box, also 25 Dollars with which I will 
beg you to pay the inclosed Bill [of] Gardelters, and to return the 
Articles when altered either by Strong or any other safe oppor- 

I am just setting out for the review of the Southern regiments, 
and on my return shall not remain in Charleston above three 
days before I set out for Columbia where I expect to have a very 
disagreeable sessions owing to, the Appian politics — 

With great regard and Esteem I remain 

Y r friend 
Charles Cotesworth Pinckney. 

Ralph Izard 

Charleston Dec r . 26th: 1794. 
Dear S r : 

On the 20th instant I wrote to you from Columbia, and gave 
you an account of our Elections and the termination of the Appian 
business; this Letter will be confined altogether to the manage- 
ment of your plantating Interest. Mr. Owen called on me yes- 
terday and we had a long conversation on that subject. I find 
with 220 workers you have not made this year more rice than E 
Rutledge and myself have at Charley wood with ninety; That in 
some of your plantations there has been considerable embezzle- 
ment; and that on your plantation where you make most to the 
hand and really a good crop, there is no overseer but only a Black 
Driver — From hence I conclude that your planting Interest is 
most abominably managed, and that it will continue to be so 
while Mr. Pryor has anything to do with it — He is infirm, unwieldy, 
without activity Monstrum, horrendum, informe, ingens, cuj lumen 
ademptum. — 5 It is impossible for him, (if he had the inclina- 
tion) to look after your business with the attention it requires, 

6 Virgil: AE. Lib. Ill, 658. 


and both Mr. Owen and myself are of the opinion that it is essen- 
tial to your Interest that Mr. Pryor should be dismissed. Fraser 
is dead — Mr. Owen thinks Mr. Perry might be prevailed on to 
superintend it, if that could be accomplished, as he already rides 
through your plantations twice or thrice a week, and is an excel- 
lent Planter, it would be most a desirable object — But if Mr. 
Perry should decline this business I think that you had better let 
Mr. Owen direct as he did in 1777 when without the San tee Ne- 
groes, you made fifteen hundred Barrells of Rice, whereas this year 
with the addition of the Santee Negroes will not make a thousand. 
I have thus frankly given you my sentiments on your affairs, you 
however are the best judge how they should be conducted and will 
act accordingly. 

I inclose a paper with the additional Militia Act and the Num- 
bers of the Divisions Brigades and regiments which I will request 
you to shew with my Compts to Generals Pickens and Winn — 
accept the Compliments of the Season and be assured I am 
Your friend 

Charles Cotesworth Pinckney.

amiable relict of the honorable colonel Charles Pinckney, formerly 

2 Eliza Lucas, who first introduced the cultivation of indigo in this State. 


so eminent at the bar, on the judiciary bench, and in the legisla- 
ture of this country; and mother of brigadier general Pinckney, 
and of Mr. Pinckney, the present minister of the United States of 
America, at the court of Great-Britain. This all accomplished 
lady, possessed, in a most eminent degree, all the amiable and 
engaging qualities, united to all the virtues and graces, which 
embelish and exalt the female character. — Her manners had been 
so refined, by a long and intimate acquaintance with the polite 
world, her countenance was so dignified by serious contemplation 
and devout reflection, and so replete with all that mildness and 
complacency which are the natural results of a regular uninter- 
rupted habit and practice of virtue and benevolence that it was 
scarcely to behold her without emotions of the highest veneration 
and respect. Her understanding, aided by an uncommon strength 
of memory, had been so highly cultivated and improved by travel 
and extensive reading, and was so richly furnished, as well with 
scientific, as practical knowledge, that her talent for conversation 
was unrivalled, and her company was sedulously sought after by 
all, without distinction of age or sex, who could be so happy as to 
gain admission into it. Her religion was rational, liberal, and 
pure. The source of it was seated in the judgement and the heart, 
and from thence issued a life, regular, placid, and uniform. 

"Mild as the blest above, without serene 
As Eden's air, and calm as heaven within." 

In a word, her whole life was like the Milky way with stars, 
thick-set with the genuine fruits of sincere piety and active benev- 
olence. The natural consequence of such a life was, that she 
met death in the midst the most excruciating pain, with a truly 
Christian fortitude, and a Heaven born tranquility. 

"She taught us how to live, and, oh too high 
A price for knowledge! taught us how to die." 

(Wednesday, July 17, 1793.) 

Died. In Laurens county, on the 16th day of June, in the 19th 
year of her age, Miss Jane Hunter, eldest daughter of the honor- 
able John Hunter Esq. This youthful lady is much regretted by 
her relations and friends, and all those that had the pleasure of 
her acquaintance. (Friday, July 19, 1793.) 


Married On Monday last, two celebrated widows, ladies of 
America and France, after having repudiated their husbands on 
account of their ill treatment, conceived the design of living 
together in the strictest union and friendship; the said amiable 
ladies, in order to give a pledge of their fidelity, requested that 
their striped gowns should be pinned together, that their children 
should be looked upon as one family, while their mothers showed 
them an equal affection. Mr. Lee officiated with dignity as their 
proxy, and explained the reciprocal obligations these two ladies 
promised to confer on each other, inviting their children at the 
same time to imitate their mothers; Mr. Samuel Prioleau acted as 
the sponsor of the American lady, with that dignity, which such a 
deserving ward required; Mr. Huger, Ramsay, and Burke, three 
of her faithful guardians, assisted at the feast on this occasion. 
The brave artillery signed that contract by the fire of their guns, 
and all their brothers in arms by thousands of huzzas; the merry 
guests waited for his excellency in an anxious solicitude, they 
lamented his absence, but they rested assured of his patriotism; 
the representative of the gallic lady, M. A. B. Mangourit, was so 
feelingly touched at this so noble a scene, that while his eyes 
overflowed with tears of joy, he only lamented the absence of the 
president and all those of his colleagues that are true friends to 
those ladies, to join with the French Americans to celebrate the 
Carmagnole and sing Ca Ira. (Saturday, July 20, 1793.)

Copied by Mabel L. Webber 1 

The name of Strawberry was used for this locality on the East- 
ern side of the Western branch of the Cooper river, as early as 
July, 1698, when James Child had a grant of 1200 acres there; he 
early laid out a town at the bluff on the river, which he called 
"Childsberry Town," and in his will, dated October 29, 1718, he 
gave an acre and a half in the town, for a Church, or Chapel. 

On December 9, 1725, an Act was passed for establishing a 
Parochial Chapel at Ease at Childsbury to the Parish Church in 
St. John's Parish, Berkeley County. The Chapel was built at 
the charge of several of the parishioners, on the land given by 
James Child in his will; it was of brick, and is the same building 
which stands to-day. The name of Childsbury soon disappeared, 
and the chapel has always, and still is, called Strawberry chapel. 
The burying ground is still in use. 

A full account of Childsbury, with a plat of the town, and the 
Strawberry locality, written by Judge Henry A M.. Smith, will 
be found in this Magazine, vol. xiv, pages 198-203, and vol. xv, 
pages 107-112.

Dear Sir: 

If I should any longer delay writing you might not only wonder, 
but ascribe my silence to Some wrong cause. 

To morrow will complete two months since my arrival here in 
that time the attention of every Man of any rank obscurity has 
been more or less engaged in public affairs, not one more particu- 
larly called upon than Mr. E. Rutledge, 1 to this circumstance I 
attribute his inability, after many promises, to join me in a visit 
to your plantations which I should have made several weeks ago 
if he had not particularly signified a desire to accompany me, and 
in order to accomodate him as well as to indulge my self I would 
continue to wait, if it were not likely to be attended with great 
injury to your Interest — but I have heard from Mr. Thomas 
Smith, concerning your Goose Creek Plantation and of Mr. Farr, 
of your Estates in general such bad Acct's as oblige me even at the

1774, he got (Thos.?) Farr to take charge. {Izard Correspondence, pp. 5, 6.) 



hazard of further losses in my own to interpose as far as I can in 
your concerns. — I shall begin a journey this Morning towards 
Bacon Bridge and endeavour to take the Several Plantations in 
this Quarter under examination, all that can be accomplished in 
so few days as I have to spare shall be to the best of my ability — 
my own Estates soward of CharlesTown require my attendance 
full as much as yours, but these shall have the preference. I have 
not seen my own nor will I go to them before I visit yours — at my 
return from this Journey I shall report to Mr. Rutledge and engage 
his more particular attention during my absence from Charles- 
Town — when I go to the Southward. 

Your box of papers is not yet come to my hand when it does I 
shall take the best measures in my power contents (sic). 

From Mr. Rutledge's accounts of Remittances which he has 
made to you we compute that £1200 Sterling more will be necessary 
to borrow in order to make your demand of Four Thousand, — 
hitherto our endeavours for procuring so much Money on our 
joint Bond have been fruitless; Money is exceedingly scarce, as I 
too feelingly know in my own affairs I am obliged to beg and in- 
treat for the payment of three and four years arrears of interest 
due on Bonds to my self and even under such well grounded claims 
can scarcely bring in enough to keep my House expences from 

Mr. Manigault, 2 my Brother 3 and another friend will endeavour 
to assist me — a few days longer delay, provided I succeed in the 
end will probably be attended by advantage to you as the source 
of Exchange seems to be inclining to the old standard 700 per 
Cent. 4 

In a word Sir although I count myself in an unfortunate engage- 
ment yet I will do all that I can to serve you but I perceive too 
clearly that your affairs require as my own did and still do the 
Eye and direction of a Master. 

1 must close here for the present and shall [do] what may be 
needful at my return on the 14th or 15th Inst. — My best wishes 
attend you and Mrs. Izard and my compliments to your fellow

Dear Sir:

10th ffebruary. — ■

Walnut Hill, Round Savanna and twice, Goose Creek 7 — at each I 

5 Arthur Lee, M.D. 1740-1792; diplomat. 

6 Answer refers to the reply to Sir Egerton Liegh's anonymous pamphlet, 
entitled Considerations on Certain Transactions of the Province of South Caro- 
lina (McCrady, vol. 2, p. 722), which violently attacked Laurens. 

From a letter written by Laurens to John Lewis Gervais, dated Westminster, 
January 24, 1774 (Laurens's papers, Mss.) we find that Leigh's pamphlet 
came out in January, 1774, and a copy was at once sent to the Library Society 
in Charles Town; Laurens attributed it to Leigh, with whom he had quarreled, 
with good cause, both for political and family reasons; Laurens took up the 
matter of a reply with Charles Garth, London agent for South Carolina, who 
agreed to furnish material for the Answer; he then consulted with Izard who 
took up the cause; the Answer prepared by (Arthur?) Lee, appeared April 8, 1774 
(Laurens papers, letter to John Laurens). Edward Rutledge in letter to Izard 
July 21, 1774, mentions Lee's pamphlet, and states that he and Lynch will do 
what is proper. {Izard Correspondence, pp. 5, 77.) 

McCrady (vol. 2, p. 722), thinks that the Answer resembles the style of 
Wm. Henry Drayton. Mr. Wallace {Life of Laurens, p. 173) states that he 
knows of no move of Izard's in the matter. The evidence above, taken with 
the letters now being printed, seems to show that the Answer was prepared by 
(Arthur?) Lee from matter chiefly furnished by Charles Garth, edited by Lau- 
rens and Izard, and the expense borne by Laurens, with the expectations of 
assistance from Edward Rutledge and Thomas Lynch. 

7 The Camp was near Ashley River, (This Magazine, vol. xix, p. 73). Jack 
Savanna, Round Savanna, and Walnut Hill, were on the south west side of 
the Ashley River {Ibid., xv, pp. 150, 155). The Goose Creek plantation was

found affairs in such order as displeased me and made some ar- 
rangements which I hope will be attended with benefit to you — I 
took a state of the Negroes Cattle &c — at each place the par- 
ticulars of which shall be soon transmitted to you after my return 
to Charles Town, whither I am now proceeding from a visit from 
my own plantations in this Province. I mean to call again on 
yours in the course of my Journey — 

When I left home which was on the 25th ffebr'y I had reed 
encouragement from Mr. Manigault and Mr. Thos. Smith to hope 
of finding at my return Money in their hands for your use, which 
if I am not disappointed shall be immediately remitted to your 
direction — 

I have conferred with Mr. Wainwright 8 in the encroachment 
which it was supposed he had made in your Jack Savannah Tract; 
said I must go to Law with him, that I should endeavour to support 
your right effectually, and hoped I might do so without danger of 
forfeiting that regard which he had always professed for me — 
Mr. Wainwright met me short by a proceedure and declaration 
the most candid and unexceptional — he produced his plat, showed, 
as he alledged, that he held in his Tract many Acres less than of 
right belonged to him and none of yours — proposed a survey of 
your respective possessions and to be determined by the opinion 
and Award of impartial judicious Arbetrators, all expenses to be 
paid by the party who should be found to be wrong in claim or 
defence — a fairer answer could not be expexted from any Man, it 
therefore lies with you now to give your Attornies proper direction 
on this head. 

I have also conversed and corresponded with Mr. Maine, late 
Surveyor of Lands — his answer to my letter which you will receive 
inclosed will shew you that no aid can be hoped for from him in 
your claim upon Crowfield Land 9 which you suppose has encroached 
upon your Goose Creek Tract — 

You will perceive that I have not been quite unmindful of your 
concerns and may rest assured that I will do every thing in my 
power to assist Mr. Rutledge in conducting them for your advan- 
tage I can only add my Compliments to Mrs. Izard and that I 
remain with great regard, &c.

London, 4th June, 1775. 
Dear Sir. 

I am favoured with a letter from you of the 10th Feb'y, and an- 
other from Georgia of the 27th March. I think myself much 
obliged to you for the trouble you have taken, and do not doubt 
but my affairs will be in a much better state under your manage- 
ment, and friendly attention. You think that my estate requires 
the eye of a Master. The eye of a friend will I hope for some time 
answer all the purposes of it. The proposal that Mr. Wainwright 
has made seems very fair; you will be so good as to communicate 
it to Mr Rutledge and have the matter settled. Whatever you, 
and he agree to I will certainly abide by. You will be so good as 
to speak to Mr. Macpherson on the subject, and learn who the 
old people are in the neighbourhood who are acquainted with 
the lines. I am entirely a stranger to the mode of settling these 
kind of disputes, but I have been told that a great deal of care is 
necessary to avoid being over reached. I am not in the least 
acquainted with Mr. Wainwright, but Mr. Manigault has described 
him to me as a man extremely litigious, and ever watchful to 
take advantage of whatever may be turned to his own interest. 
I hope to hear that his character has been misrepresented. 

With regard to the Goose Creek Tract, Mr. Maine acted I sup- 
pose according to the intelligence which he received from Mr. 
Gerardeau who surveyed Crowfield. 

They certainly cut off part of my land, and Gerardeau told me 
he did it in consequence of what he had heard from Mr. Walter 
which was that my Grandfather had given it to Mr. Middleton 
when he married my Aunt. The old negro Joshua at Goose 
Creek, or Robin can inform you more about it than I can. Mr. 
William Middleton 10 has assured me that my Grandfather never 
gave him any land. I am extremely anxious about having my 
lines settled, and knowing the value of all my property in Caro- 
lina. As the Country disagrees, with me I am desirous of dividing 
it and having part in money at interest, and part in land in New 
York; 11 will you be so good as to give me your advice on this 

10 See note 9.

Delancey, of New York. (Ibid., p. 214.) 


subject. If any favourable opportunity were to offer, I should 
be glad to dispose of half my lands, and Negroes for that purpose. 
Mr [Benjamin] Bewicke tells me that he has received twenty 
casks of Indigo which he cannot sell according to the value of the 
Invoice. Neither Mr. Rutledge nor Mr. Farr have written me a 
syllable on the subject; my being on the Continent may probably 
have been the reason. I wrote to you from Florence, Leghorn, 
Rome and Naples; some of my letters I hope have got to your 
hands. It is incredible what a number of my letters I have lost 
during my Tour. Many that came safe appeared to have under- 
gone an examination at the Post office; surely the curiosity of the 
Gentlemen there is insatiable. I am much surprised that neither 
Mr. Lynch nor Mr. Rutledge has mentioned anything to me about 
the Pamphlet. Rutledge indeed in one of his Letters to me, tells 
me that he, and Lynch would take care, and do what was proper 
about it. 12 Whatever they intend doing I am sure it is not proper 
to delay it so long. If nothing is done I shall certainly share the 
loss with you. After the trouble we have had in this business I 
think it will savour a little of ingratitude if we are suffered to be 
losers. I shall write to them about it.

Ralph Izard, London. 

Per L. Despenser; 23 October, 1775 
Dear Sir: 

I had intended by this opportunity to have written you a very 
circumstantial account concerning your affairs in this Country, 
but Public business and some untoward occurrences which are 
pretty public too have robbed me of the proper time, I have risen 
this Morning long before daylight in order to write and dispatch 
this on board the Packet which is«to sail at Dawn — 

Your Indigo Plantations at Sante have made bad Crops, that 
under Boyd's care scarcely enough to pay expences. And the 

12 See note 6. 


Camp yields as bad an Account as either, the Rice was almost 
totally destroyed by Spring Rains after being planted and replanted 
three times, I went there the 9th September to view the Indigo 
and had intended to have shipped it, but found it too wet, and I 
am sorry to add that the whole quantity will not exceed eight 
hundred weight. — At Goose Creek and the Beech Hill Plantations 
the Crops of Rice are also short but you are as well off as your 
Neighbours in general. I shall be able to make out Cloathing 
enough for about half your Negroes not more. 

In the late, I may say present, bustle of people removing from 
CharlesTown, Mr. Rutledge's Clerk called upon me to take charge 
of a quantity of Madeira Wine which he said belonged to you the 
first intimation I had ever had of it. — 

I found it in extreme bad order the Casks in which it had been 
packed all loose and open some of them fallen asunder and much 
breakage at the same time a Cedar Chest which I suppose contains 
your Papers was discovered and said to belong to you together 
with certain Household plate, which are now in my hands. 

Such large demands are made upon me for amounts due by Your 
Estates before I came into the Colony as will oblige me to borrow 
perhaps £1500 Curency or Subjest your Estate to attachments — 
these are all unpleasant tidings and shew you the necessity there 
is for a personal attendance — you may rely on this for truth that 
I attend your affairs full as much as I do my own and so much 
more as that I have called in the aid of Mr. John Lewis Gervais 
a Gentleman well qualified for the purpose and have promised to 
give him all the Commission to which I shall be entitled in return 
for his assistance. — here I must close or my Letter will be left behind 
the Boat people call on me and will wait no longer. 

Our public affairs are not a whit more satisfactory than the 
accounts which I have given of the Crops. 



London. 16th. July, 1777. 
Dear Sir. 

It is a melancholy situation for a person of any modesty to be 
in when he is obliged either to have an undeserved censure cast 
upon his conduct, or to speak in his own praise. To you I think 


it will be unnecessary to say much of my political opinions, and 
conduct. If the knowledge that have had of both when you 
were in London, was not sufficient to make you think favourably 
of them, neither would you be induced to do so, by any thing 
I could say to you now. I had flattered myself that it would 
have enabled you to have given my Countrymen so favourable 
an opinion of me, that when the measures of witholding the prop- 
erty of those Gentlemen who were absent, was resolved on, I 
might not have had such an affront offered me; not as a favour, no 
man has a right to expect that, in such times as the present. In 
the winter of 1775 I sent a proposal to Mr. Lynch, which I desired 
him to communicate to his friends who were at. that time in 
Philadelphia. It was months after, before I received a Letter 
from him, which was written in such a manner that I could not 
understand it; I had not then learned of his misfortunes. 13 How- 
ever strong my inclinations may have been since that time to 
carry my family to America, my Wife has been in such a situation, 
that I have never had it in my power to do it, without great danger 
to her. I have not however been idle here. Every exertion in 
my power, has been made to be of service to the cause I have so 
much at heart, and to stop the progress of Tyranny, which has 
produced such Convulsions, and Calamities in every part of the 
Empire. It is some consolation, though but a small one, to think 
that if the doctrine which I endeavoured to inculcate had been 
adopted; if Commissioners to treat with the Congress had been 
sent without an Army and no bloody Germans had been engaged, 
we should be now in the enjoyment of the blessings of Peace. 
These points I urged as forcibly as I could with L; North, L; G. 
Germaine, and Sir Gilbert Elliott; but their system was determined 
on, and nothing upon Earth could have prevailed on them to 
give it up. Other attempts to be of service I have made, not 
proper for a Letter, and which I hope have not been altogether 
ineffectual, I have been attentive to the duties of a good Citizen, 
labouring for the success of a cause, which I think the noblest that 
ever was contended for. Conscious as I am of this, it is humili- 
ating for me, when I expect approbation, to receive the censure 
of my Countrymen, which I attribute to their not having been 

13 Thomas Lynch, Sr., died Dec. 1776. 


properly informed about me, and which I cannot help lamenting 
as a misfortune. I have lately written to your Son, to E. Rut- 
ledge, and to my cousin Ralph, on the subject of remittances. 
This was done before I received your letter of 2d. April, delivered 
to me by Mr: Wells, and which was the first information that I 
had of your being restrained from sending my property to me. 
I have desired a remittance of £1500 or £2000 Sterling to be made; 
but for the reasons which you give in your Letter respecting the 
price of Indigo, and the difficulty that I find there is of getting 
any produce to an European market, I wish not to have above 
five or six hundred pounds sent. The economical plan which I 
have adopted, and the receiving some money lately that was due 
me from my Uncle Johnson's 14 estate in Ireland, enables me to 
make a shift some time longer without any remittance; and I 
should not be very anxious about having any, if I did not consider 
it as a removal of the misconception about me. This matter I 
leave entirely to yourself, and desire that you will let me hear 
from you about it, as soon as you have leisure. 

So much for my publick conduct, which to mention a syllable 
of to you in a way that looks like justifying myself, wounds some- 
thing within me, which an Enemy would call pride, but which I 
think ought to have a gentler appellation. With respect to my 
private conduct, there cannot be much difficulty in clearing up 
that. You say " that you have frequently written to me, and that 
you have never received a line from me; that possibly Letters from 
each may have been intercepted; which was to be admitted only 
as a possibility because your Letters to other friends, and theirs 
to you have been received on each side." If 1 were capable of so 
great a neglect as this, I should be altogether unworthy of your 
friendship. That I have not, I do in the most solemn manner in 
the Presence of God declare. As to my own private affairs, I 
seldom said much about them, having the most implicit confidence 
in your management and thinking then, as I do still, that the less 
there was said about them under the appearance of giving direc- 
tions, the better; as you, who were on the spot, could judge with 
more propriety what ought to be done, than I at this distance. 
I wrote several political Letters to you wishing to keep up a corre- 

14 Henry Izard, father to Ralph, married September 26. 1739, Margaret, 
daughter of Gov. Robert Johnson. (This Magazine, vol. II, p. 213.) 


spondence with you in that line, but not receiving any return, I 
conceived that the business, and engagements you had entered 
into, made it troublesome, which was the reason of my discontinu- 
ing it. It is extremely unfortunate that our Letters should so 
frequently have miscarried. I have received none from you but 
those of Feb: 1775, 27th March, 1775, and 23d Oct: 1775, 
and likewise a note of about four lines, informing me in general 
terms, that my affairs were in a bad state, and that the American 
Fleet 15 had just made its appearance off the Bar. I have been 
for these two, or three years very little in London, and therefore 
was not in the way of being informed of private opportunities. 
When I was in France, and Italy, I enclosed my Letters to you, 
to Mr: Sayre which he put in the Post office expecting that they 
would go by the Packet. This I also did myself upon my return 
to England. Mrs. Izard's letters to her family at New York have 
been constantly opened, and almost as constantly witheld, and 
mine have without doubt been served in the same way. My let- 
ters to you have not been regular for the reasons I have given 
above; but I do again in the most solemn manner assure you 
that I have written to you since your departure from England, at 
least seven or eight, which if they had been received, would have 
exempted me from the charge of neglect. I do not always keep 
copies of my letters, but think myself fortunate in having found 
three among my papers, which I shall transcribe several times, 
together with this Letter, in hopes of getting one copy to your 
hands. You say that you had heard in CharlesTown, that I 
had taken Lodgings in the King's Bench, whether this report was 
fabricated by malevolence, or folly, I cannot tell. In either case 
it cannot affect me otherwise than exciting my pity, or contempt. 
I could wish for the Gentleman's own sake, be he who he may, 
that it were the latter; as the character of a Fool, is not so bad as 
that of a Knave. You say that you are sorry to hear such a report, 
and would not believe it. I should have expected no less of you, 
from the friendship you have been so good to express for me ever 
since I have had the pleasure of your acquaintance. You will, I 
doubt not, do me the justice to believe, that if you had been at 
any time seperated from your estate, and such misfortune had

June 4, 1776. (McCrady, vol. 3.) 


befallen you, I should have sincerely lamented it. Dean Swift 
never knew a person who could not with philosophy bear the mis- 
fortunes of another. He was I believe too severe; but I cannot 
help being afraid, that if diligent search were to be made in Charles- 
Town, some Philosophers might be found who would come under 
the Dean's description. You will I fear be troubled with the 
length of this Letter; and yet I cannot conclude without reminding 
you, of what must have escaped your attention when you wrote 
yours of 2d. April, I mean the difficulty there will be for me to 
send cloathing for my Negroes. My family, which is not very 
small, 16 cannot be supported without considerable expense; and you 
know that for these last two, or three years, I have not been very 
plentifully supplied with the means of doing it. I have been told 
that there have been considerable importations of Negro cloth 
into Carolina, and that a great deal has also been manufactured 
there. It has been said that some Gentlemen have made such a 
quantity, as not only to serve themselves, but likewise to sell to 
their neighbours. Colonel Heyward in particular I hear has been 
able to do this. You inform me that you have £8000 of mine out 
at interest; I should therefore be obliged to you, if you would 
apply as much of that as is necessary to the cloathing of my Ne- 
groes, even if you should receive no more money on my account, 
which I think can hardly be the case. 

I now conclude with offering the Compliments of my Wife, and 
both our congratulations on your late appointment. 17

The above items complete the earlier registers of Christ Church 
Parish; the Church Proceedings cover from July 12, 1708, to August 
6, 1759; and from May 1, 1797, to April 5, 1847. On August 6, 
1759, according to the Journal of the Vestry, it was agreed to 
have a new book bought for a Register, to commence from that 
date; this was evidently the second of the two old parchment 
covered books, from which most of the entries printed in this 
Magazine, beginning with volume xviii, and ending as above, 
have been taken. The second register was used for records only, 
the first contained the Church Proceedings as well. 

The church seems to have been long without a Rector, the Rev. 
Henry Purcell being the last one of the Provincial period. The 
church was burned by the British in 1782 or 1783, but was rebuilt 
about 1787, and was incorporated in the same year. 

In the Mss. Journals of the Vestry for May 1, 1797, there is a 
letter to the Rev. Daniel McCalla, and the members of the Con- 
gregational Church of Christ Church Parish [Wappetaw church] 
stating that they had been long without a clergyman, and request- 


ing that Dr. McCalla give them two services once a month in the 
Parish Church. After some correspondence, the request was 
granted, and he served until his death in 1809. 

In February, 1811, a report was made to the Vestry concerning 
the minutes of the Vestry, and the Church records; a chasm in 
the minutes from August 6, 1759, to April, 1797, was reported; and 
the Register showed a break in births and baptisms since April, 
1750; marriages, since July, 1760, and burials since 1759. 

The second register was afterwards found and recopied by 
Edward O. Hall, Secretary and Treasurer of the Vestry, in 1880, 
and it was from Mr. Hall's copy that Mr. Langdon Cheves made 
the copy owned by this Society, which has been used in connec- 
tion with the two original registers.

Robert Pringle the immigrant to South Carolina was the second 
son of Robert Pringle of Symington in the Parish of Stow in the 
County of Edinburgh, Scotland. Symington was the name of 
the family estate, which still remains in the possession of a descend- 
ant of the name. The date of his birth the writer has never 
ascertained, exactly, but he seems to have arrived in Charles Town 
in the Province of South Carolina about the year 1725, and there 
established himself as a merchant. On 18 July 1734 he married 
Jane the daughter of Andrew Allen an eminent merchant of 
Charles Town. She died 3 June 1746, leaving no surviving chil- 
dren. On 16 April 1751 Robert Pringle married Judith Bull the 
widow of Stephen Bull the eldest son of William Bull late Lieu- 
tenant Governor of the Province. Her maiden name was Judith 
Mayrant and she was the daughter of James Nicholas Mayrant 
and his wife Susanna Gaillard. By her first husband she had one 
son William Bull who was quite young (three years old) at the 
time of his mother's second marriage. Robert Pringle in 1760 
was appointed one of the Assistant Lay Judges of the Court of 
Common Pleas in the Province and so continued until 1770. He 
was one of the Judges who concurred in the rendition in 1765 of 
the famous order to open the Court and carry on its business with- 
out the stamps required by the Stamp Act. In 1741 he constructed 
a brick residence on his property on the North side of Tradd Street 
— -one lot West of Meeting Street — which was taken down some 
years ago when the property was sold. 

In 1774 he constructed on the same property a large three sto- 
ried brick mansion which is still standing, the residence of Arthur 
R. Young, Esq. He died 13 January 1776 aged, according to the 
published notice, 74 years. He left surviving him three children 
by his second marriage: 

John, born 22 July 1753. 

Robert, born 4 April 1755. 

Elizabeth Mayrant born 29 March 1757. In 1783 she married 
William Freeman of Charleston and died without surviving 



John Pringle the eldest son of Robert Pringle^ added Julius to 
his name and was always known as John Julius Pringle. He 
studied law in England where he was a student \ in the Temple. 
After the close of the Revolutionary war he practiced law in 
Charleston for many years with great success. In 1789 he was 
appointed by General Washington United States Attorney for 
South Carolina and in 1792 he was appointed Attorney General 
of South Carolina which office he held for sixteen years. In June 
1805 he was offered by President Jefferson the post of Attorney 
General of the United States which he declined, preferring to 
remain in his native State. He was the owner of Runnymede

The following entries taken from the old Bible are all in the 
handwriting of Robert Pringle the emigrant except the six last 
which are in a different hand. The entries made by Robert 
Pringle are in a fine large distinct clear hand. The Bible itself 
is a thick folio sized volume containing the Book of Common Prayer 
and the Old and New Testaments "Printed and sold by Richard 
Ware at y e Bible & Sun on Amen Corner" and "Oxford. Printed 
by John Baskett, Printer to the University, MDCCXXXVIII." 
The Bible contains a large number of later entries from which most 
of the condensed information given above as to Robert Pringle's 
descendants has been obtained. The entries which follow are 


valuable among other information for the statements concerning 
the Allen and Smith families they contain. \

DECEMBER, 1765, TO AUGUST, 1766 

The marriage licenses listed here are taken from a volume of 
Records of the Proceedings in the Court of Ordinary from December 
21, 1764, to August 28, 1771. This volume has recently been 
returned to South Carolina through the courtesy of the Overseers 
of Tufts College, Massachusetts, it having been in that Library of 
that college for many years. 

Just why there seems to have been no systematic record kept 
of the marriage licenses granted, is hard to explain; in the above 
mentioned volume, the list is in the back of the book, upside 
down, and only the briefest possible entries made, even the 
name of the clergyman is not given in the first few. So far as the 
Editor has found in the records, this is the only list that attempts 
to be chronological; occasionally a stray record of a license will 
be found.

The collection of genealogical notes gathered by the late Motte 
Alston Read, Esq., covering many of the Coast families, in some 
cases nearly complete, and numbering several thousand items, 
has been carefully arranged in folders, pages numbered, and in- 
dexed by the folders, by his friends Mr. D. E. Huger Smith and 
Miss Alice R. Huger Smith; placed in metal cabinets by his sister, 
Mrs. Joseph Hume, of New Orleans, and presented by her to this 
Society. This is a very valuable gift, which will be of great assist-

Ralph Izard, London. Per Miss Wells, under cover to Mr. Wells. 1 

2d April, 1777 2 
Dear Sir — 

I have often writ you, never favoured with a line from you, 
possibly letters from each have been intercepted, to be admitted 
only as a possibility because my Letters to other friends and 
theirs to me have been received on each side. 

I will try once more by the hands of a Lady whose promise I 
have to deliver Letters from me to the parties to whom directed. 

1 Robert Wells, then in London; this letter and one to Wells were sent by 
"Miss Grissie" Wells (Laurens Letters). Robert Wells (1728-1794) removed 
from Scotland to Charles Town before 1754 (Grissel, daughter of Robert and 
Mary Wells, born May 15, 1754; she and her sister, Louisa Susanna were 
baptized Nov. 1755 by Rev. Chas. Lorimer, of the Scotch Meeting. St. Philips 
Register). Wells published the S. C. and American General Gazette; 
he went to England at the opening of the Revolution, leaving his business in 
S. C. in the hands of his son John. His estates were confiscated in 1782. 

2 This letter should have preceded that of Mr. Izard's to Laurens on page 
7, Jan. issue. 



After an infinite deal of trouble and many a personal Visit 
turning away and transposing vilanous Overseers, some of whom 
had been wasting and other appropriating your Estates to their 
own use, I have put the whole in tolerable Order — now I am ordered 
to leave them and my own again to the pious trust of Overseers, 
I am to be sent to Philadelphia, what effect my absence will have 
on your Estates I cannot tell — but I mark down 40 per cent loss 
on some of my own. 

I yesterday made a return of Taxable Estates for you I gave 
in 8070 Acres of Land and 508 negroes the best Account I could 
get in each case, and also £6000 at Intrest — I have paid off the 
sums borrowed and remitted to you in 1775 — and now have 
£8000 at Interest on your account in good hands — £2000 lent 
since the above £6000 above mentioned. I must continue to 
improve money arising from the Sale of your Rice in this manner 
because tis impossible to make you remittances until next Winter 
— the Owners of Vessells will not take ffreight of Rice on board, 
and Indigo is run up to such prices as promise nothing less than 
40 to 50 per Cent loss and in many Instances more, for Instance, 
in the case of your own Indigo produced at Santa it was sold at 
301 per lb, the Markets must be extremely high in Europe if it 
sells there at 215 Ster., the ffreight Insurance and Charges will 
abate at least 30 Per Cent. Besides this I am not Permitted to 
remit to any person who is not coming immediately to America 
a Subject not to be dwelt upon — Your Money will be earning 
you 7 Per Cent here. I hope you will be able while you do remain 
yonder to live at 5 Per Cent. 

I have strove hard to Clothe your Negroes two years past even 
to Stripping in part my own, you may depend on this as truth I 
have Saved in the purchase of such Cloths as I could give them a 
very large Sum of Money to you, but it will be incumbent on you 
to take some thought for them this year, I shall probably not be 
in the way, and I do not know in whose hands I shall leave your 
affairs. Mr. Rutledge seems reluctant to interfere in them again 
and in fact for your sake I am reluctant to return them to him, 
because I perceive it will not be in his power to attend to any 
kind of business out of Charles Town nor out of his proper sphere 
— his head and his hands will be crammed full of law and politics 
however I shall consult him and do nothing against his consent — 


Mr. Farr in the most peremptory terms when I offered him all the 
Commissions arising from the Estates refused to have anything 
to do with it — indeed certain reasons offered for such a refusal 
disgusted me so much on your Account, I cannot with propriety 
apply to him again — on such terms I had engaged with Mr. 
Gervais to take charge of the plantations but I found it so little 
in his power to give the necessary attention I was forced to resume 
the burthen — but this I cannot promise to do when I return from 
Philadelphia, hitherto I have acted from motives of friendship 
but the additional weight of your affairs has made the general 
burthen of business which falls to my share too heavy — besides I 
do not Love to do business for a Man who takes no care of his 
own Affairs, such a one can never be a proper judge of the endeavors 
of his friends to serve him — he is too apt to ascribe ill success to 
the Neglect of those who have taken great pains to promote his 
Interests. He is too apt also to assign wrong motives to the 
Labors of his friends and to think that Commissions are the temp- 
tation — I do not apply these remarks by any means to you, but 
from very long experience of Mankind I am sure they will apply 
to most Men who are careless of all their own affairs their Estates 
I mean except the Income — when that does not reach their expec- 
tations, which has been strained to the very upper line of possibility 
and no allowance made for casualties, they are dissatisfied and 
too often make improper expressions of their displeasure. 

I have never been able to trace an account of agreements with 
one of your Overseers — not to find an Inventory of your Household 
Goods and effects at Goose Creek Plantation — consequently in 
the former Case I have been obliged to take the words of the Men 
themselves — in the letter, the very Devil has been played by 
some body or other, Negroes or Overseers — to save the remainder 
which appeared to me, I have already ordered part to be sold 
and shall make a clean House for you — Goods were never dearer, 
perhaps the Amount of what I shall collect for fragments will be 
equal to the original value of the whole — I understood that you 
had left four pipes of Madeira Wine here, these I first learned of 
when people were moving their effects from Charles Town, then I 
found all that was said to be the produce of these four Pipes tumbled 
about in a Store accompanied by amazing breakage — the Net 
quantity saved will not amount to Ninety dozen, it had been 


very badly managed was so thick no body would buy of it a second 
time. I had put it into the hands of a proper Man for sale he 
obtained from 12 to £15 per doz. for so much as he did sell — there 
remains about 75th which I will order to be sold next week. 

'Till that event of the people's flying from Charles Town and 
removing their effects I had not received either your plate or 
your chest of Papers — Mr. Rutledge then in Philadelphia — 
one of his clerks pointed those articles to me. I had applied a 
hundred times before for them — but to this hour I have not received 
the Key of the Chest — lately fearing your papers would have 
been all destroyed by Vermin I caused the Lock of the Chest 
to be forced and a new Key made. 

You must not blame Mr. Rutledge for anything amiss I dare 
say from my own experience — that he was just as careful of all 
your affairs as he has been of his own, as much this, as you would 
expect at my time — full as much as could have been expected 
from any Man in such times as we have lived in the past two years. 

A report has been whispered that you had taken lodgings in 
the King's Bench 3 it hurts me much to hear it — I will not believe 
it — however it had reached the ears of your Negroes, I could not 
contradict the story, but recommended strongly to them to work 
you out again — upon some, this had a good effect— others, who 
think themselves more judicious than their fellows — say tis your 
own fault — you don't deserve Negroes. 

I will do everything while I stay here to promote your Interest 
but I recommend to you to come and take it into your own Custody 
and management, at least for a while or 'till you can sell it to 

I am &ca

Goose Creek, 9th June, 1777. Copy, dup. 
Dr. Sir 

I am now on my Journey to Congress halted at this 
empty House last night in order to inquire into Plantation Affairs 
generally and to give the needful Instruction to Mr. I. Owen a 

3 Rumor that he was imprisoned for debt. 


Gentleman whom I have prevailed upon to superintend and 
order your Estates in this Country during my absence or until 
you shall made a different Disposition — I say prevailed upon 
because I found it a very difficult matter to prevail upon any 
proper Man. 

I have long since informed you that Mr. Farr had peremptorily 
refus'd to continue his Attention — altho I had endeavored to 
tempt him by an offer of the whole Commission and to add my 
Advice and Assistance gratis as often as he s'd require — that 
upon such terms I had persuaded Mr. Gervias a very honest 
sensible Man and well qualified for the Purpose to take the Charge 
into his hands — but his Engagements in public and other Concerns 
rendered proper Attendance impracticable, I was obliged to 
resume the Task, not a little to my own Damage. 

In my last Letter which I sent by the hand of a Lady thro 
France you were told that Mr. Rultedge had discovered a Reluc- 
tance, this ended in the most positive Denial to receive into his 
Custody any of your Estates or Effects, he thinks himself at best 
unqualified for directing plantation Affairs and at present under 
an absolute Necessity of attending closely to his own which he 
says and no doubt with great Truth have been sadly shattered 
by the times in his absence. His advice upon every occasion 
when applied for, he said might be depended upon, but he could 
not promise anything more. 

In this Dilemma I applied to Mr. Owen who altho he is not a 
Planter I believe will conduct the Business of all your Plantations 
in their present State and for the remaining part of this Year as 
well as any one Man in the State could do — if indeed we could 
prevail upon Neighbors to attend specially each plantation, more 
success might be expected but this is not even to be hoped for in 
these times every Man finds his hands filled by his own Affairs, 
and knows himself every moment liable to be called from them 
to Public Duty in Camp in Committees in Assembly or some 
other Branch. 

In many respects Mr. Owen's Central situation will give him 
an Advantage in your favour, particularly in Procuring Articles 
important of all must be watch'd with great Attention — I have 
contrived to conduct your Negroes thro' two Winters Pretty much 
to their satisfaction and at no great expense to you — as the third 


approaches they will anticipate sufferings, and be very clamorous 
unless they perceive that Provision is made for covering them — 
it seems also to be absolutely necessary that you sh d have repre- 
sentative in Charles Town, your Negroes are continually deserting 
the Plantation and going there where I have no doubt many of 
them would have embark'd in the Men of War and other Vessels 
and have been totally lost to you if I had not been upon the spot, 
sometimes to shield them from the Tyranny and Villainy of 
Overseers and sometimes to restrain their own vicious Designs — 
nothing more troublesome than that branch of Plantation 
Business and I have had more of it fall to my lot from your Negroes 
within two last years than I have experienced in twenty years 
of my own. 

Mr. Owen is altogether disengaged from Business, public and 
private a very honest Man and not quite a novice in Country 
Affairs and I am sure will be frequent in visiting the Plantations 
and will prevent a Repetition of such Enormities as has been 
practiced on most of them, he will also conserve and keep together 
the whole, hence I felt myself happy on your account in having 
prevailed upon him. The Crops however are all set and all in 
this Quarter very promising — how they are at Sante I shall know 
as I pass along for I mean to call at each before the planting of 
another Crop or even before reaping the present. I hope you 
will be in Carolina and take Charge personally of your Estates, 
or you may give such further orders as you may judge proper. 

Agreeable to my late Intimation I have ordered all the bed 
Furniture (one Feather Bed and one Mattress excepted) which 
remain'd in this house to be sold, it was highly necessary to realize 
it — the whole had suff'd exceedingly by Vermin and Time, and 
much of what you had left, had been plunder'd by the Negro 
Woman to whose Care you left the house and by her Companions 
— and probably by some whose interest it was to impeach the 
Negroes — Chairs Glasses Bedsteads China and Chimney Furni- 
ture remain — even these do not seem to be all you had found use 
for — your Library had been long closed up and the Key lost, I 
caused the Lock to be forced and the Books clean'd — I have never 
been able to get a Catalogue of these, an Inventory of your Effects 
in this or any other Plantation, or even Copy of former agree- 
ments with any of your Overseers — this Deficiency may oblige 


me to submit to some very sad fellows almost upon their 
Terms, there are no less than three whom I dismiss'd for very- 
bad Behavoiur whose Accounts are not yet settled 

My Son inform'd me upon his Arrival here that you express'd 
an Anxiety to have your Madera Wine preserv'd, I had previously 
sold almost the whole, that Article had been greatly mismanaged, 
Mr. Farr tells me Mr. P. Manigault's Negro had stolen the 
greater part of one out of the four Pipes. I have already told you 
I had never heard of the Article nor of your Plate until the Inhab- 
itants of Ch. Town were making a general move of their Effects, 
then I was call'd upon to take Charge of those, and then your 
Chest of Papers, without a Key was deliver'd to me, the plate 
was loose, I caused it to be carefully pack'd — and with my own 
sent to one of my Plantations less exposed to Danger than this — 
the wine was tumbled about a Room by the Bursting of the Heads 
of Barrels, where the whole Bottles lay like heaps of Bricks amidst 
the pieces of broken, which added to the Robbery above mentioned 
had reduced the quantity to about Ninety Doz. these were of 
very mix'd Quality some very good, but the majority ordinary 
and all very foul — part I order'd to be sold it yielded from £12 to 
£15 per Doz. as many bottles as fiU'd five casks I had reserv'd 
and sent here, hoping you would have drunk it last Winter, but 
upon hearing you had taken a new habitation in England — seeing 
the Barrels again growing bad, and learning the Consequence of 
leaving it exposed I ordered this also to be sold from £15 to £20 
Pr. Doz. and I am persuaded I have done well for your Interest 
it was not Wine that would ever have been fit for Company without 
great Waste — every Body who purchased complain'd of it. 

The Quantity of Rice made of Crops 1775 and 1776 amount in 
the whole to about 1910 bbls. besides a pretty large Quantity still 
unbeat at Round Savanna and Walnut Hill— Goose Creek the 
Camp and the two Sante plantations have made very little, the 
produce of these three latter in those two years 3695 lb. (?) of 
Indigo not fit to have ship't to you, even if I had been permitted, 
no less than three Barrels were said to be stolen while the Over- 
seers were upon Militia duty — two more probably by one of the 
Overseers himself which I resent and refuse to pay him his claim 
for Share or Wages — the other thro' the neglect of Streaterwho 
was Overseer at Camp, which compl'd me to dismiss him — I w'd 


willingly proceed and be very minute in Account of all your Affairs 
but the great uncertainty of reaching you intimates that generals 
may be better. 

I have your Acct before me 'tis too bulky to impose upon any 
Friend who is charg'd with other Letters and w d go very unsafely 
— Let me therefore conclude by informing you that the Debt 
which I had contracted for those Bills remitted in 1775 is paid 
off — that your Plantations are free from all but small Curr* Debts 
and that I have lent of your Money at 7 per cent., the legal interest,

which brings your Accounts nearly to balance and leaves no 
Cash in my hands — in Mr. Owen's there is one Boat Load of Rice 
about 23 bbls. and 97 large half bbls. the amount of which must 
rest with him for the Purchase of Cloths and other necessaires 
for the plantations and possibly before the Crop comes round 
he may find it necessary to borrow a little upon the fund above 
mentioned — I am apprehensive it will require a large sum for the 
Article of Clothing alone. 

As far as it shall lie in my power I will continue my Advice and 
my Services and while your Affairs remain without your presence 
or a new Appointment, which in these uncertain Times may spite 
of all your Endeavours be very long, they shall not be abandon'd 
to Waste and Ruin. 

The Voice is much against you for neglecting the Public Call. 4 
I wish on that account as well as for the Amendment of your 
Estate you w d attempt to appear — If I were near I might whisper 
many Things new to you but I hate to talk loud to a Friend when 
People stand between us. 

I wish this may get safe to your hand — Be assured of my Wishes 
for the happiness of you and yours and that I am Dr Sir your &c

London, 18th July, 1777. 
Dear Sir 

Since my last letter to you I have received one from your father 
which has hurt me a good deal; and Mr. Lloyd 5 has just sent me 
from Nantes an extract of a Letter which he received from Mr. 
Lowndes, informing him that "whatever may be said by absentees 
in excuse for their remaining out of the State, suspicions will be 
entertained to their prejudice, and disadvantage; and it will be 
imputed to a motive either of avoiding danger to their persons, 
or a disaffection to the cause." I am conscious that no such 
motives actuate me; and I had flattered myself that others in 
Carolina would likewise have been convinced of it. I can not 
think for a moment upon such ungenerous opinions, and suspicions 
without the greatest uneasiness; especially as it is totally out of 
my power to go over, and remove them in person. In my last 
Letter to you I expressed a desire of having some remittances. 
If Five, or Six Hundred Pounds could be sent to me to France, 
with the approbation of the Public, it would make me very happy, 
as I should consider it as the removal of all misconceptions 
respecting me. This I hope to have, as a matter of justice; not 
of favour in such times as the present; and whoever is disaffected 
to the cause of his Country, which is the noblest that ever was 
contended for, is undeserving of it. I have received no letters 
from you since your arrival in Carolina, but I hope to have one

Paris 21st Dec: 1777. Copy. 
Dear Sir 

I congratulate you on our important success against Mr: Bur- 
goyne, 7 and assure you that our affairs in this part of the world 
stood much in need of some such event. The conduct of the French 
Ministry has for some time past been very equivocal, and in 
many instances extremely offensive. At present our affairs here 
wear a very pleasing aspect, but I am sorry to say that our new 
friends appear to me to act so little upon manly, and honourable 
Principles, that had the arms of our enemies prevailed against 
us we should have been sacrificed without any ceremony. It is 
improper that this should be generally known, but it would be 
more so that the Members of Congress shou'd be ignorant of it. 
This I mention to you because I wish you to be persuaded that our 
salvation must depend upon our own exertions. 

In my last Letter to you I mentioned something of the extraor-

dinary conduct of Mr. Thomas Morris 8 the Commercial Agent 
in this Kingdom. In truth I cannot help thinking, but the unpros- 
perous appearance of our affairs of late at this Court may have 
been occasioned by this Gentleman. The French Ministry have 
long known that his enormities have been laid before Congress 
by our three Commissioners here, and yet they see him continued 
in his Office, and know from unquestionable authority that his 
Brother was determined to support him in it, and had influence 
enough in Congress to do it in defiance of every application. 
This seems the more extraordinary as he has taken the manage- 
ment of his own private affairs out of his hands, being convinced 
how unworthy he was to have the care of them. They were 
inclined from this to hold the Commissioners in contempt, and 
their opinion of the Wisdom and Virtue, even of Congress itself 
was I fear lessened. So convinced am I of the great power and 
influence of Mr. Robert Morris, that I have not a doubt were 
he to know of this representation to you, that my removal 
from the appointment which I have at present the honour of 
holding under Congress would be the consequence of it. I wish 
therefore not to be subjected to his enmity to no purpose. In 
writing to you on this subject I have no motive but public good. 
I have not the least acquaintance with the Gentleman complained 
of; even his person is unknown to me. I wish his character were 
so likewise, but as that is so often spoken of by every body who 
comes from Nantes, I should think myself guilty of a neglect of 
my duty were I not to mention it to you. I will not trouble you 
by entering upon particulars of the Commissioners, and especially 
those of Mr. Deane, you will meet with full information. Let 
the consequences be what they will; Whether the grievance which 
I have mentioned to you be removed, or whether I be removed 
myself, it will always be a consolation to me that I have discharged 
my duty. — In my Letter of the 6th: 9 October I informed you of 
my having made an engreement for a quantity of Blankets and 

8 Thomas Morris was U. S. commercial agent to France; he was a half 
brother to Robert Morris, who gives an account of his character in a letter to 
Henry Laurens dated Dec. 26, 1777 (Diplomatic Correspondence of the American 
Revolution, v. 2, pp. 460-461). Thomas Morris died in France before Feb. 28, 
1778 (Journals Continental Congress, VXII, p. 879). 

9 This letter of Oct. 6, 1777, is printed in the Izard Correspondence, page 
348, as are a number of other letters belonging to this correspondence. 


Negro Cloth to be shipped from hence. One part of the conduct 
of the French Ministry which I have mentioned above as offensive 
consists in their throwing considerable embarassment in the way 
of the ships that were loading in their Harbours for North America. 
At one time they were suffered to get ready, at another the Officers 
at the different Ports received orders to put a stop to all prepa- 
rations. My Cloth was to have been shipped by the 15th October 
at farthest. The Vessel that was to have carried it is not yet 
sailed and I have lately been informed by the person who was to 
have executed my Commission, that he has not been able to do 
it for the above reasons. Indeed if he could do it, it seems now 
too late. The Winter would be nearly passed before it could 
possibly arrive in Carolina, and Mr. Owen will I hope have taken 
care of my Negroes with these necessary Articles, let the price 
be what it would. The Negroes ought to be comfortably cloath'd, 
if there is a possibility of doing it I cannot think of their not being 
so without the greatest uneasiness, and I would take any chance of 
borrowing money in Europe for the maintenence of my family, 
and have the whole of my Crop appropriated to that purpose, 
rather than that they should be subjected to that distress. — 

My intimacy with the Tuscan Minister at this Court has enabled 
me to do my business more effectually than if I had been at Florence ; 10 
he is a man of ability, very friendly to our cause, and in great 
favour with the Grand Duke 11 his master. By his advice I have 
delayed my journey into Italy, and I have reason to be satisfied 
with it, though contrary to my own wishes. It is certain that the 
King of Prussia 12 has lately refused a passage through his Dominions 
to some German Troops intended to be sent to America, and it 
is said to have been done at the desire of the Emperor. 13 This is 
a point that I have continually pressed with my Florentine friend, 
and he has repeatedly assured me, that the Grand Duke's interest

Tuscany, July 1, 1777; the state of European politics became such that he 
did not visit the Court to which he was destined. Congress recalled him July 
8, 1777, and a few months later he returned to America.

with his Brother might be depended on. This is a matter of 
such a nature, that you will of course take care that it be entre 
nous. It is very possible that the King of Prussia may have been 
induced to act by motives that we are not acquainted with. The 
contrary is likewise possible; and that possibility affords me some 
satisfaction. — When Congress did me the honour to give me a 
Commission, and Instructions, they neglected furnishing me with 
proper funds to execute them. This I have avoided mentioning 
in my Letters to the Committee for Foreign Affairs from a point 
of delicacy. I need have no such scruples with you, and I depend 
upon your friendship to set this matter in its proper light. 
The public service has not been retarded a moment on this account; 
nor shall it be. Mr. William Lee 14 who was appointed at the 
same time a Commissioner to the Court of Vienna is in the same 
situation. This seems extraordinary, as the three Gentlemen 
at this Court, whose Commissions are exactly the same as ours, 
have very ample appointments. It is proper that I should inform 
you of this. It should be said that it is difficult to make remit- 
tances, the answer is very plain; a vote of Congress that the 
Commissioners at this Court be directed to pay such a sum out 
of any money they have now, or may hereafter have in their 
hands, will be sufficient. I have had a very severe fit of the gout, 
which has already confined me seven weeks to my Chamber; it 
is considerably abated, and I hope my confinement will not last 
much longer. The weather however is extreamely cold, and of 
course unfavorable to me. 

Mrs. Izard desires her compliments to you.

Dear Sir 

My friend Mr: Carmichael 15 will probably pay a visit to whatever 
Town the Congress may be sitting at upon his arrival in America. 
As I am sure that a mutual satisfaction will be the consequence 
of your acquaintance I take the liberty of introducing him to you. 
He has been employed here confidentially on the public service, 
and nobody can give you a better account of the state of affairs 
in this part of the World than he can. You may safely confer 
with him, as he is warmly attached to the cause of his country.

The case of Joseph Ash is recorded in the volume of Records 
of the Court of Ordinary 1764-1771, recently returned to South 
Carolina through the courtesy of Tufts College. 

That ecclesiastical excommunication for failure in civil duties 
was very unusual is apparent from the statement of Judge John 
F. Grimke of So. Ca. in his Duty of Executors and Administrators, 
printed in New York in 1797, pp. VII- VIII, in which he laments 
the lack of power in the court of ordinary, now called the court 
of Probate, which at the time he wrote, subsequent to the Pro- 
vincial days, had no power to punish persons for neglecting or 
refusing to obey its process. He states that "formerly, indeed, 
the Ecclesiastical thunder was hurled at the disobedient . . . 
So much indeed were persons intimidated by these Ecclesiastical 
censures, that I believe only one occasion has been offered in this 
country from its first settlement to the expiration of the British 
government in this State for the Ordinary to proceed to the greater 
excommunication . ' ' 

The case he then cites is the Ash case. Excommunication is of 
two kinds. By the lesser, the offender is deprived of the use of 
the sacraments and divine worship, which sentence is passed by 
the ecclesiastical Judge, on such persons as are guilty of obstinacy 
or disobedience in not appearing upon a citation or not submitting 
to other injunctions of the Court. By the greater excommuni- 
cation, in addition to the above mentioned penalties, the offender 
is absolutely deprived of the benefit of the society and conversa- 
tion of the faithful. These powers were vested in England in 
the Court of the Archbishop of Canterbury which had jurisdiction 
over the administration of estates of deceased persons; in the 
province of South Carolina the power was vested in the Governor. 

From the genealogical notes collected by the late M. Alston 
Read Esq., it appears that Cato Ash, who died intestate about 
1757, was a brother of Joseph Ash, Richard Cochran Ash, John 
Ash, all mentioned as administrators; another brother was James 
Ash, and his sisters were Portia, Theodore and Priscilla; these 
were the descendants of John Ash who was sent to England in 



1703 by the Dissenters to lay their grievance before the Lords 
Proprietors; Ash died in England in 1704. Sarah, the widow of 
Cato Ash married Henry Livingston, and after his death, she 
married Charles Odingsell. 

The proceedings are as follows :

Joseph Ash and others Def'ts. 
Mr. Rutledge moved that Joseph Ash not appearing as required 
by order of Court to render his accot's of his Administration, that 
he be deemed contumacious and Excommunicated for such his 
Contumacy, and His honor having fully heard the proctors for 
both parties on the said Motion — Ordered that the said Jospeh 
Ash be thrice publickly Called, which being done and he not 
appearing, but contumaciously absenting himself His Honor in 
pain of such his Contumacy at the petition of the Actors proctor 
decreed him to be Excommunicated. Whereupon it was moved 
by Mr. Pinckney, that his General Protest against Sentence of 
Excommunication being denounced might be entered amongst 
the Acts of Court — Ordered Accordingly, And also Mr. Rutledge's 
Motion, That his Dissent to the sd protest be also Entered apud 
acta — 



Then a Schedule of Excommunication being tendered by the 
Actors proctor to his Honor, He required the Reverend Mr. 
Robert Cooper to read the same; but he prayed (such an act 
being disagreeable to him) that he might have time til next 
friday to consider whether he should do it; Whereupon the Rev. 
Mr. Joseph Darce Wilton of St. Philip's parish in this behalf 
lawfully Authorized by reason of the premises at the like petition 
of the Actors proctor, by a Schedule duly read and signed by 
him Entered amongst the acts of Court, Excommunicated the 
said Joseph Ash by the Sentence of the Greater Excommunication. 
Thereupon Mr. Pinckney moved that his protest Agt. the said 
Act of Excommunication be duly Entered inasmuch as there is 
no proof before the Court that the order for the said Joseph Ash 
appearing this day was served on him or any publick notice given 
him of the same. 

Ordered Accordingly, And Also that Mr. Rutledge's Dissent 
to the said protest be also Entered in as much as he alleges that 
such Service or notice was not required or necessary under the 
Circumstances of this case.

In the Court of Ordinary 8th March, 1765. 

Mr. Pinckney moved that Jos: Ash being unwilling under sentence 
of Excommunication, might be absolved therefrom which Mr. 
Rutledge consenting thereto was ordered accordingly on the said 
Defendants paying the Fees Contumacy — 

Then Mr. Pinckney produced the said Defendants acco'tof his 
Administration and they were referred to ye Register to be 
examined and reported upon next Friday — 


Mr. Rutledge moved also that the sd Defendant might also 
produce an Inventory of what the Intestate's Estate at present 
consists — the sd. Defendants answer by his Proctor is that the 
Estate consists only of Money as mentioned in the sd. Account. 

Whereupon Mr. Rutledge suggested that there are Divers 
negroes Goods and Chattels belonging to the Estate of which 
the Defen't ought to exhibit an inventory and for proof thereof 
refers to the original inventory filed in the Secretary's office and 
such other Evidence as he may adduce in his Cause and Prays 
that such Proof being made the Defendant may be obliged to 
exhibit an Inventory and be accountable for such Articles — 
Mr. Pinckney Protested Generally to the Admission of such proof 
and Mr. Rutledge Dessented to the sd. Protest. 

[There follow a number of other hearings on the same case, 
until it was settled.] 

Note. By English laws, jurisdiction in matters concerning the 
Probate of Wills and the administration of the personal estates 
of deceased persons including the supervision of the acts and 
accounts of executors and administrators was vested in what were 
called the Ecclesiastical Courts. Anciently these courts were strictly 
ecclesiastical being the courts of the Archbishop or Bishop or their 
representatives, as the case might be. 

Having no secular power, the final sentence these Courts could 
pronounce upon a contumacious litigant who refused to obey the 
decree of the Court was to declare him "excommunicate." The 
person so excommunicated was to be turned out of church by the 
church wardens and not to be allowed Christian burial; was dis- 
abled to be a witness or to sue or commence any action in any 
of the Courts of Justice. If, notwithstanding these penalties, the 
party excommunicated still continued in his contumacjr, resort 
could be had to the secular arm, and the ecclesiastical judge 
certified to the King that the party excommunicated had obstinately 
persisted in his contumacy for more than forty days, which cer- 
tificate being delivered to the Chancellor in the Court of Chancery, 
a writ styled the writ of excommunicato capiendo issued directed to 
the Sheriff of the County in which the excommunicated person 
lived, directing the Sheriff to apprehend him and keep him in prison 
until he satisfy the Church or ecclesiastical Court for his contempt 
and be absolved from his contumacy. 


The right to this writ existed at common law but it was recog- 
nized and directed to be enforced by the Statute enacted by Parlia- 
ment in the fifth year of the Reign of Queen Elizabeth. 

This Statute was never made of force in South Carolina and as no 
ecclesiastical courts, properly so called, ever existed in that Province, 
jurisdiction in the matters of wills and estates being exercised by 
the Governor as ordinary under the Statutes of that Province, no 
right to issue the common law writ of excommunicato capiendo seems 
ever to have been admitted or given by Statute. Thus a decree of 
excommunication by the Provincial Court of Ordinary against a 
contumacious person could not be enforced by the secular process 
of seizing the person of the offender and committing him to prison 
until he obeyed and was absolved. " — Note by Judge Henry A. M.

In the Warrants for Lands in the Province of South Carolina, 
1680-1692, 166 is recorded a warrant for 650 acres of land to be 
laid out to Mr. Thomas Smith for the arrival of himself, and wife 
Barbara, sons Thomas and George Smith, Matthew Crosse, 
Philip Adams, Joan Atkins, Johanna Atkins, Elizabeth Adams, 
Aron Atkins, Ellen and Mary Atkins and Michael Peirce. Dated 
10 July, 1684. 1 

In respect to the name of Philip Adams, above, a mistake may 
have been made by the recorder, and it may be fairly inferred 
that instead of Philip, it was Phillis Adams who was meant. 

What was the occasion of Landgrave Thomas Smith's voyage 
to New England? Can it be true, after all, that the statements 
of "The Octogenarian Lady," 2 so flouted by some, had a real 
base of substantially true tradition? 

President John Adams, whose wife was of the Charlestown, 
Mass., family of Smith, stated that she was connected with the 
family of Landgrave Thomas Smith of Carolina. And it is a 
matter of record in our Middlesex County Register of Deeds that 
a Carolina Smith quit claimed his interest in property of his grand- 
parents, of Charlestown, Mass., to an uncle there. 

In working among the files of the Supreme Judicial Court, 
now in Court Files of Suffolk County, some time ago, I discovered 
the following papers. 

1 Thomas Smith and his family arrived in South Carolina earlier in the 
year 1684 than July 10, as the following abstract shows. 

Indenture 20 June 1684; Benjamin Waring of Warington ffort near the 
ponds, Berkeley County, merchant, to Joan Atkins of Berkeley county, Charles 
Town, widow; 1600 acres of land near the Ponds and ffort called Warington 
fort. . . being measures out to the said Waring by right of himself and family. 

Thomas Smith, Barbara Smith, and Robert Hull witnesses.

unbound vol. page 117.)

As to Elizabeth Adams the same records show only her second 

Alexander Duncan and Eliza. Turnerr were married by Mr. 
Miles July 6, 1698. 

In the Registry of Probate for Suffolk Co. are the wills of 
Alexander Duncan, and of his widow Elizabeth Duncan. Among 
the papers in the settlement of Alexander Duncan's estate is a 
petition from his widow asking for an accounting, as the executors 
had included in the estate, the estate of her former husband, 
Matthew Turner. In order to redeem the said estate, adminis- 
tration on the goods of Matthew Turner, Joyner, deceased, was 
granted March 23, 1715, to Elizabeth Duncan, late Turner, 
widow, of Boston, his relict. 

Matthew Turner was rated for a tax in Boston in 1692. After 
which I have no knowledge of him. 


Elizabeth Turner, widow, is rated in Boston for a tax in 1698. 
Probably in March. And on July 6, same year, she married 
Alexander Duncan. 

Alexander Duncan's will is dated Jan. 26, 1712. He gave his 
wife Elizabeth all of his estate after his executors should pay to 
his "Honored Mother Margaret Sands £40." "Loving sister Anna 
Duncan £20." "Brother William Duncan £40." [All of South

Paris 25th July 1778. 1 


I was on the 9th Instant honoured with your Letters of 5th. 
February, and 14th May, which are the first that I have ever 
received from you. 

The death of the Elector of Bavaria, 2 which happened on the 
30th of last December, has produced a war between the Empress 
Queen and the King of Prussia. This will not, I hope, materially 
affect America; but it has occasioned an unlucky circumstance. 
The Empress Queen before this event was very well disposed 
towards us; and the King of Prussia expressly declared that he 
would be the second Power in Europe to acknowledge our Inde- 
pendency. The death of the Elector of Bavaria has made an 
alteration in the political sentiments of both of those Powers. 

1 This letter was laid before Congress by the Committee of Foreign Affairs, 
and read Monday, December 7, 1779 (Jour. Cont. Cong., vol. XII, p. 1198)

As soon as the Austrian Troops had taken possession of part of 
Bavaria, the King of Prussia applied to the Court of France as 
one of the quarantees to the succession of the Elector of Barvaria, 
in case of the failure of male issue in the latter, settled at the 
Peace of Westphalia in 1640. The French Ministry declined 
giving any succours to the King of Prussia, which has disposed 
him to look towards England. The Troops of Hanover, Hesse, 
and Brunswick, together with several other German Princes in 
friendship with England, may be of considerable service to him, 
and therefore he is very unwilling at present to offend that Crown. 
On the other hand the Empress Queen applied to the Court of 
France for 24,000 Men to assist her against the King of Prussia 
by virtue of the Treaty of Versailles, concluded in 1756; but the 
French Ministry declined likewise affording her any assistance. 
France in that Treaty guaranteed the Dominions which the 
Empress Queen was at that time poss'ed of; and the 24,000 Men 
therein stipulated to be furnished, could not have been intended 
to assist her in encreasing them. The refusal has however offended 
her; and in consequence of what I have related, the Courts of 
Berlin, and Vienna have both refused to receive Mr. Lee. The 
Grand Duke of Tuscany is unfortunately obliged to regulate his 
proceedings, by those of the Court of Vienna. Had his conduct 
depended upon himself, I should have gone to Florence several 
months ago; but in the present situation of affairs I have the 
mortification of not being received by the Prince to whom I am 
appointed, when I know that he is desirous of receiving me, and 
will do it as soon as it is in his power. I have been invited to reside 
at Florence as a private Gentlemen, and have been assured that it 
would be agreeable to the Grand Duke. If any circumstances 
should happen to make it probable that by going there, I may 
be able in any manner to accomplish the wishes of Congress, I 
shall set out immediately. I have hitherto acted as appeared 
to me most likely to meet with their approbation, and shall continue 
to do so; it will make me very happy to be informed that I have 
not been mistaken. The Abbe Niccoli is the person whom I 
mentioned in my Letter of 18th December. 3 He is the Tuscan 
Minister at this Court, and I am well assured he is in great favour

at his own. Every thing in his power I am convinced has been 
done, to serve our cause. I enclose you two Letters which I 
have written to him on the subject of money, but am sorry to 
say that the situation of affairs in Germany does not allow me to 
have very flattering expectations at present. I have thought it 
proper to state these facts, that Congress may be enabled to judge 
of them, and give me their instructions accordingly; which I 
shall follow to the best of my ability.

Paris 16th Jan'y 1779 
Dear Sir, 

I have waited with the utmost anxiety for Letters from you, 
and the Committee. Your Letter of 19th May is the only one 
that I have been favoured with since your arrival at Congress. 
I have frequently informed you of my reasons for staying here, 
and of the impossibility of borrowing money according to the 
Resolution of Congress of 4th last February. 4 Genoa is the only 
part of Italy where it is possible to procure any money; and even 
there it will not be lent without the Court of France would become 
security for the repayment of it. I have repeatedly applied to 
the Ministry for their assistance, which has been refused. I have 
informed myself of the nature of Loans in Genoa, and find that if 

4 Resolutions empowering the commissioners at the Court of Tuscany to 
obtain a loan not exceeding one million Sterling, at the usual rate of interest, 
on the faith of the thirteen United States of America, for a term not less than 
ten years {Jour. Cont. Cong., vol. X, p. 120). 


the Court of France would have agreed to become our security, 
I should notwithstanding have met with great embarrassment. 
Each sum of money procured, must have been deposited in the 
public Bank, without my having the power of touching a farthing 
of it, till the engagement entered into upon the occasion should 
return, ratified by Congress. The interest however, must com- 
mence as soon as the deposit should be made; which would be at 
least Six per Cent, besides the charges. These terms appear 
totally inadmissible. 

As the Resolution of Congress does not limit me to any place, 
I was desirous of going to Holland, and endeavoured to borrow 
the money there. The Commissioners at the Court of France 
have opened a Loan in Holland which has not hitherto proved suc- 
cessful. It has been begun two, or three Months, and yet there has 
not been more than between Fifty, and and Sixty Thousand Florins 
received; which shews that there would be no probability of my 
accomplishing the wishes of Congress there. If the Court of France 
would exert themselves, they might supply America with several 
Millions Sterling. Some difficulties would certainly occur but they 
could be surmounted, and when the great advantages which this 
Kingdom will derive from what America has already done is 
considered, every exertion ought to be made, and every assist- 
ance afforded us in their power. From the Letters that have 
been sent you, you will judge how extremely disagreeable my 
situation for some time past must have been. It was my duty 
to take notice of the scandalous proceedings of Dr. Franklin; 5 and 
as he is not very remarkable for having a forgiving temper, he has 
been constantly watching for an opportunity of shewing his re- 
sentment. You have been informed that I had received the Two 
Thousand Louis D'Ors from the Commissioners for my support. 
This sum I managed with the utmost frugality which is evident, 
from my having maintained my family with it for Fifteen Months, 
from September 1777, the time when I was informed of the ap- 
pointment, with which Congress had honoured me, to December 
1778. This sum is considerably less than I had ever been able to 
maintain my family with in England, when it was much smaller 
than it is at present; and there does not appear to be any differ- 

*For Izard's disputes with Franklin, see Dip. Correspondence, vol. 1. 


ence in point of expense between Paris and London. I wrote to 
the Commissioners, and informed them that the money which I 
had received from them was spent, and desired to know whether 
they chose to renew my credit at the Public Bankers, or that I 
should draw on them for what money I might have occasion for. 
Dr. Franklin wrote me that they would supply me with no more 
money. This Letter he desired his Colleagues, Mr. Lee, and Mr. 
Adams, to concur in; which they both refused to do. The unrea- 
sonableness of this proceeding was pointed out to him. He was 
desired to consider how improper it was to create new causes of 
dispute at so dangerous a time as the present. He was reminded 
of the Resolution of Congress of 9th May, 1778, which directs 
"that the Commissioners at the other Courts of Europe be em- 
powered to draw Bills of Exchange from time, to time, for the 
amount of their expences, upon the Commissioners at the Court 
of France." He was base enough to quibble about words, and 
said that the instruction set forth that those Commissioners who 
were at the other Courts of Europe should be supplied with money; 
but that as I was not at Florence, nor Mr. William Lee at Vienna, 
it should not extend to us. 

As soon as I was informed of this matter I drew a Bill for Five 
Hundred Louis D'Ors, in favour of the public Banker, and waited 
on the Commissioners at Passy with it myself. I was fortunate 
enough to meet them all three together and presented the Bill 
to Dr. Franklin first, as the eldest. He refused to accept it, re- 
peated the conversation which he had had with his Colleagues 
on the subject, and in addition to it said that the sum which I 
had already had was so extravagantly great, that he was sure I 
could not have spent it; and if I had he saw no reason why the 
Congress should maintain my family. It will be unnecessary to 
trouble you with the whole of the conversation, which was full 
of insolence, falsehood, and brutality. I reminded him of the 
impropriety of my going into Italy; of my staying in Paris being 
in consequence of the advice received from the Court of Florence, 
and from the Commissioners at this Court, himself being included 
among them. All arguments with him were fruitless. He had 
taken his Resolution, and could not be dissuaded from attempting 
to gratify his revenge whatever might be the consequence. Mr. 
Lee, and Mr. Adams totally disapproved of the proceeding, and 


accepted the Bill. I can not express to you how much this affair 
has shocked me, from every consideration Public and private; 
and I call upon you as a man of honour, and a friend to your 
Country to set your face against it. It can not possibly be con- 
ceived that Congress, who have upon the most virtuous principles 
opposed the Tyranny of the King, and Parliament of England, 
should calmly suffer their authority to be insulted, their instruc- 
tions evaded by a contemptible quibble, and these Gentlemen 
whom they have honoured with their confidence, to be ill treated 
for doing their duty, by any haughty, and Tyrannical Individual 
whatever. — It was strongly reported here sometime ago, that 
you were coming over as Minister at the Court of France. I am 
extremely sorry to find that this report is not confirmed, and can 
with truth assure you that every friend to America would rejoice 
at such an event. It is a misfortune that it has not taken place; 
and so essential is it to have a man of ability, and honour in that 
office, that I think it a duty you owe your Country to obtain it, 
if it be possible. Our interests at the different Courts of Europe 
are so intimately connected with the proceedings of the Court of 
France, that it is of the greatest importance they should be well 
conducted here; and I am most thoroughly convinced that no 
man of honour can do his duty, and serve his Country properly, 
who has any connexion with Dr. Franklin. It is a painful part 
of my duty to write to you in this manner, and I hope it will be 
properly attended to. It is said here that Mr. Deane is to come 
over to Europe in a public character, that his interest, and Dr. 
Franklin's are triumphant in Congress, and that those Gentlemen 
are to have the entire management of the affairs of America in 
Europe. If so, it will be high time for every honest man to retire, 
as the only possible means of avoiding embarrassment, and dis- 
grace. The public dispatches from Congress are daily expected; 
and till they confirm this report, I can not believe it to be true. 

There has been no great change in the Politics of Europe, since 
I wrote to you last. The war in Germany still continues; but the 
Courts of Versailles, and Petersburgh are endeavouring to bring 
about an accommodation, which many people think will be effected 
before the opening of another Campaign. The Spanish naval 
Armaments still continue to be carried on with vigor; and though 
no declaration has yet been made by the Court of Madrid, to that 


of London, every appearance seems to indicate an intended coop- 
eration with France. The English amuse themselves in expect- 
ing to derive some advantages from the divisions among our 
General Officers in America, in which I hope they will be mistaken. 
Their own Admirals and Generals are at the same time tearing 
one another to pieces. Sr. Hugh Palliser has brought Admiral 
Keppel to a Court Martial for misconduct, and neglect of duty on 
the 27th and 28th of last July; and the proceedings of the two 
Howes are to undergo Parliamentary investigation as soon as the 
vacation is over. The whole nation is divided about these matters, 
and it is likely that some important consequences may be produced 
by them. Would to God that the Peace of America could arise 
from the divisions among her enemies! My Wife desires her 
Compliments to you, and we both offer them to your Son, She 
has very lately received a Letter from Mrs. Laurens, who is very 
well, and writes that little Fanny is grown a fine healthy Child. 
When you communicate this intelligence to the Colonel, be so 
good as to present him at the same time with the dutiful respects 
of his Godson George, who is a least as fine a Boy as any in France.

Paris 6th Feb'y 1779 

- I had the honour of writing to the Committee for foreign Affairs 
on 28th of last month, desiring that they would obtain leave from 
Congress for me to return to America. This I did because it 
appeared impossible for me to be of any service to my Country in 
the present situation of affairs. The interests of America have 
already suffered too much by the disagreements among the Serv- 


ants of Congress in this part of the world, and an immediate stop 
should be put to them if possible. I see no way of doing this but by 
recalling that party who have it least in their power to be of service 
to America in Europe. I am willing to suppose myself one of 
them, and therefore request that you will be good enough to move 
for me to return to America. As soon as this is procured I must 
beg the favour of you to transmit me several copies of it in hopes 
that one of them may get to my hands time enough for me to 
avoid a winter's passage. 

I should be obliged to you if you would at the same time procure 
a particular order from Congress that my expenses may be paid 
me, as you will find what an attempt has been made to evade the 
Resolution of 7th May 1778. 

I beg your pardon for the trouble I am giving you, and am with 
great regard

We have been long without receiving any News here directly 
from America, and are very anxious to know the event of the

Henry Laurens Esq. 
North America 

Paris 18th Febr'y 1779 
Dear Sir 

I enclose you two papers which I received on the 13th instant, 
a day, or two after the arrival of the Marquis de la Fayette in 


• I 

this City. They were directed to me under the same cover, to 
the care of Mr. Grand, our pjublic Banker here. As soon as I 
received them I called on Mr. Grand, and enquired of him who 
delivered the Letter thus addressed to him. He informed me that 
Colonel Gimat, one of the Marquis de la Fayette's Aids de Camps 
brought it to his House. I wrote to the Colonel, and begged to 
know from whom he received it. His answer was that it was given 
to him at Passy, by young Mr. Franklin. This last Gentleman 
informed me that it was put into his hands by the Marquis de 
la Fayette. I then waited on the Marquis, and begged that he 
would let me know how it came into his possession. He told 
me that he brought many Letters from America, but as he had 
made no list of them, it was impossible for him to tell if the one 
I shewed him was among the number or not. I shewed him the 
contents of the Letter, pointed out to him the intentions of the 
writer, and hoped that he would assist me in discovering so wicked 
a person. He seemed to feel the matter very properly, and 
promised that he would do everything in his power observing at 
the same time that it was very possible that some artful person 
might have contrived the means of conveying the Letter among 
those which he sent to Passy. 

No 1, and 2 were not written by the same hand. The writing 
of No. 1 is extremely like that of Dr. Bancroft. 7 I shewed it to 
Mr. Pringle, and Mr. Lee, and asked them whose writing they 
thought it, without giving them my opinion about it. They are 
well acquainted with Dr. Bancroft's hand, and are both fully of 
the opinion that it was written by him. The papers No. 1, and 2 
had both been dipped in water that the writing might be blotted, 
and have the appearance of having been wet at Sea. But the 
cover which contained them was clean, and the direction had 
evidently not been wet. Perhaps the writer thought that if he 
had wetted the cover, it must have given it so remarkable an 
appearance, that the Marquis, upon having it shewn him, must 
have known that no such Letter had been brought by him. I 
am unable to express to you how this villainy has shocked me. 
It is evident from the paper No. 2 that most of my Letters to you 

'Edward Bancroft, M.D., F.R.S. 1744-1821, naturalist and chemist; 
secret agent for Franklin {Dipt. Corresp., vol. 1, pp. 621-641). 


have been opened, and copied before they got to your hands. 8 
You will see what use is intended to be made of this, by the 
infamous misrepresentations contained in that paper. Mr. Deane, 
and his adherents know that both you, and I are likely to prove 
formidable opponents to them, and therefore think it would be 
very serviceable to their views if they could make a break between 
us. The enclosed papers were thought likely to produce that effect 
I have too good an opinion of you to have a moments doubt about 
the falsehood of the charge laid against you, or to suspect that my 
confidence in you has been ill placed. After having read Mr. Deane's 
Address in November last to the people of America, I shall be 
surprised at nothing that he or his party are capable of doing. 
If the Congress, and the People do not unite in punishing so out- 
rageous, and daring an attack upon their Liberty, and Independ- 
ence, the friends of America in Europe will be seriously alarmed 
for the continuance of them. The wisdom of the Congress has 
withstood every effort of the enemy, and I can not believe that 
Mr. Deane will be allowed to effect that ruin to our Country which 
Great Britain has in vain attempted. The Congress is our Centre 
of Union; and our safety depends upon the confidence of the 
Public in that Body, which Mr. Deane has exerted himself to 
destroy. Mr. Lee will give the most satisfactory answer to the 
charges which have been made against him in Mr. Deane's publica- 
tion, and I doubt not but Congress will do justice to a faithful, 
and able Servant of the Public, who has been most cruelly injured. 
Our dispatches from Congress of 28th October inform us that Dr. 
Franklin is appointed Sole Minister Plenipotentiary at the Court. 
In my last Letter to you of 16th January, I acquainted you with 
his having refused to furnish me with money for my support in 
defiance of the order of Congress. The Grand Duke of Tuscany 
has it not in his power to receive me publicly; and I think it would 
be injurious to the dignity of Congress if I were to reside at his 
Court in a private Character. My Commission therefore does 
not enable me to render any service to my Country; and I think 
of endeavouring to get to America, especially as I have not the 
means of maintaining my self long in Europe. As I have repeatedly 
acquainted you, and the Committee of my situation respecting 

8 Izard mixed his private and public correspondence to Laurens in the 
same letters, Laurens giving out to Congress the public matter only. 




Italy, I hope my next dispatches will be so explicit, as to enable 
me to determine on what I ought to do. I shall most truly rejoice 
if they contain leave for me to return home. I shall continue my 
endeavours to get to the bottom of the affair respecting the Letter 
above mentioned, said to be brought by the Marquise de la Fayette; 
but I fear it will prove as difficult a matter as the robbery of the 
dispatches that were intrusted to Folgier. 9 

My Wife has lately presented me with another Daughter, 10 
and is as well as possible. She desires her Compliments, and I 
am Dear Sir 

Yours friend, and hble Servant

Philadelphia. Oct'r 22, 1778. 

Though a perfect Stranger to you personally, yet I think it my 
duty to inform you, that all your Letters to the President have 
been read in Congress; Copies have been given out to Mr. Deane, and 
to the friends of Dr. Franklin — that many observations have been 
made much to your disadvantage, while your Friends can only say 
"those Letters were never designed to be made public, and that 
you suffer in consequence, of an ill placed confidence; be it as it 
will you must be sensible that you suffer, when I assure you that 
the enclosed is handled about among the Members of Congress, 
and Gentlemen out of doors, as containing in plain English the 

9 Capt. John Folger, who claimed to have been sent by the comissioners 
at Paris, with dispatches to Congress, the packet when opened contained only 
blank papers; Capt. Folger was for a time imprisoned (Jour. Cont. Cong., 
vols. X and XI, also N. C. State Records, vol. 13, p. 22). 

10 Anne, who married Wm. Allen Deas; she edited a volume of her father's 


Sense of your Letters; I learn further that a Copy of your Letters 
with these enclosed, are actually sent to the Press to be published. 
It is not for a Stranger to advise you, but one who wishes you well, 
can not help acquainting you with the above Facts. 

I remain most disinterestedly,

Paris 3d June 1779 

I had the honour of writing to you on the 5th February; a 
Copy of which is enclosed. 

It is said that Mr. Laurens is gone to Carolina; I enclose there- 
fore an extract of a Letter which I wrote to him on 16th January. 

Wishing as much as possible to avoid disputes with Dr. Franklin, 
I desired Mr. Grand the Public Banker to speak to him, and to 
endeavour to prevail upon him to comply with the order of Congress 
of 7th May 1778. This application proved fruitless; and when I 


found that Dr. Franklin was determined at all events to gratify 
his revenge by distressing me, I wrote Mr. Grand, and desired him 
to advance me such a sum of money on account of Congress as 
might be necessary for my expense until the pleasure of Congress 
should be known. My letter reminded him that there was a 
peculiar propriety in my making the application to him as the 
Banker of the Congress; that if I should be compelled to leave 
Europe without the permission of my Constituents they might 
know that it was not come without my having taken such steps 
as appeared the most likely v to put it in my power to avoid it. 
Mr. Grand in very civil terms, declined complying with my request. 
Indeed, as his employment of Banker to the Congress, is profitable 
to him, it would have been dangerous for him to have attempted 
to render Dr. Franklin's designs toward me ineffectual. Dr. 
Franklin pretended to Mr. Grand that if the order of Congress 
was complied with, the Bills which were drawn on him from 
America, must be protested. I do not doubt but this will appear 
to you, as it does to me, a most frivolous excuse for his conduct. 
My Letters to Mr. Laurens, which I understand have been laid 
before Congress, show very clearly how unfit this person is to be 
entrusted with the management of their affairs. The mischief 
he has already done is irreperable; and I am convinced that if he 
is not removed, the affairs of America in Europe will grow from 
bad to worse — It has been shown that he disobeyed the directions 
of Congress, respecting the communication of the Treaties to me, 
to answer some private purpose, that he endeavoured to lay his 
Country under a very improper, and unequal restraint in the 11th 
and 12th Articles of the Treaty of Commerce, and that some other 
parts of the Treaties may prove troublesome to America by his con- 
duct. Congress have never signified their disapprobation to him 
that I have known of. On the contrary, they have put it in his 
power to distress such of their Servants as have fallen under his 
displeasure for having done their duty to their Country. I am in 
daily expection of receiving Letters from the Committee, which 
I hope will put it in my power to return to America, as Congress 
have long known the reasons of my not going to Italy. I have 
the honour to be 


Your most obed't hble Servant 
Ra. Izard.

Philadelphia 27th March 1781 

Dear Sir 

You will by this time, I hope, be safe arrived in France; and 
before this gets to your hands, I hope that you may have executed 
the business that has been intrusted to you, with advantage to 
your Country, and honour to yourself. The greatest exertions have 
been, and are now making by our Countrymen to the Southward. 
Immediately after the defeat of Colonel Tarleton, on the 17th 
January, Lord Cornwallis made a rapid March, with 3000 Regulars, 
after General Morgan, in hope of recovering the Prisoners, amount- 
ing to between five and six hundred, which he had taken. This 
pursuit was made through North Carolina, even to the borders 
of Virginia. His Lordship lost his object, and the Prisoners are 
secured. His next attention was to General Greene, who made a 
very masterly retreat, with an inferior number of Men, chiefly 
Militia. Lord Cornwallis has since retreated as far as Guilford 
Court House, about 40 miles to the Southward of Hillsborough, 
in North Carolina. General Greene followed him immediately, 
and the two Armies are now very near each other. Frequent 
skirmishes have happened, with various success. On the 15th of 
this Month a considerable part of both Armies engaged, with 
much loss on both sides. There is no Letter from Gen'l Greene 
about it, but Congress received one yesterday from Governor 
Jefferson which mentions what I have just related. Gen'l Greene 
has been considerably reinforced; but his Army are badly armed, 
badly Cloathed, and in want of almost every necessary. We are 
yet at a loss to know here why the cloathing and arms which have 
been so long lying in France, have not been sent to this Country. 
Captain Jones has not given any satisfactory account of this 
affair; and it is a matter that merits the attention of the Court of 
France. Congress will soon, I hope, have Letters from you on 


that subject; and I doubt not but you will have got such informa- 
tion as to enable you to be very explicit about it. Arnold has been 
doing a great deal of mischief in Virginia. He has been a con- 
siderable time fortified with about Fifteen Hundred Men at 
Portsmouth. General Washington has been at Rhode Island 
and concerted with M: de Rochambeau, and M: Destouches a 
most excellent plan for the relief of our Country. The whole 
Squadron, with Twelve Hundred French Troops on board, sailed 
from Rhode Island on the Evening of the 8th of this Month 
against Arnold. Admiral Arbuthnot followed on the morning of 
the 10th and arrived at the Capes of Virginia, before M: Des- 
touches had got in. An engagement happened on the 16th in which 
two of the French Ships, and as many of those of the Enemy were 
greatly damaged. Unfortunately Arbuthnot with his Squadron 
has got into the Capes of Virginia, and Arnold is relieved. The 
Marquis delaFayette, who is now in Virginia was to have co- 
operated with the French Troops. Twelve Hundred of the Light 
Infantry from Genl. Washington's Camp, are now at Annapolis, 
and were to have gone down the Bay immediately upon M: Des- 
touche's getting into it. Five hundred Maryland Troops are 
with them at Annapolis. This force added to a considerable body 
of Militia, which Baron Stuben has near Arnold's Lines, would 
not only have secured success against that Traitor, but also have 
given such assistance to General Greene as would have enabled 
him in one Campaign to recover the whole of the Southern States, 
which would soon, I think, have given Peace, Independence and 
happiness to our Couutry. We are in daily expectation of hearing 
of the arrival of a considerable reinforcement of ships, and Troops 
from France. God grant that we may not be disappointed and 
that something effectual may be done before the Enemy get re- 
inforced likewise. Captain Lavacher who has been exchanged, 
and is lately arrived here from CharlesTown, gives a melancholy 
Picture of the sufferings of our friends in that unhappy Country. 
If the reinforcement arrives soon from France, I think that Genl. 
Washington's first object will be to relieve them. I am with 
great regard 

Dear Sir

way with a violent attack of the fever which terminated in his 
death on the Sunday morning following. Every possible assist- 
ance was given him by doctors Waring and Prentice, who very 
obligingly and humanely went to his immediate relief. His 
disorder however, was so violent, as to baffle the effects of medicine, 
and the skill of his physicians. The public, in the death of this 
gentleman, has sustained the loss of an able and upright judge; 
and his friends, of a polite and agreeable companion. He died

well grounded hope of a happy immortality. (Tuesday, August

was attended by the fraternity of Ancient York Masons (of which 
he was a member) in masonic procession, and a numerous assem- 
blage of respectable citizens. (Tuesday, August 14, 1794.) [The 
paper for August 15 gives the committee appointed to confer on 
the subject of the yellow fever then prevalent, and also gives an 
account of a benefit given by West and Bignall for the Orphan 
House, and the letter from the Commissioner of the Orphan House 
upon the death of Bignall.] 

Died. On Wednesday morning last, after a short illness, at 
Mr. Wood's tavern, in St. John's parish, on his way from Charles- 
ton, major Joseph Lyons, inspector of the brigade of militia of 
Pinckney district. (Sarutday, August 16, 1794.) 

Died. On Sunday morning, the 17th instant, Mr. Edward 
M'Crady who endured a long and painful illness without a murmur. 
Sincerity and warmth of heart invariably characterized his friend- 
ships; and, next to the welfare of his family, it seemed his most 
cordial delight to relieve the unfortunate, and aid the friendless 
stranger; nor, in his breast, did the cause of liberty, of his country 
and of humanity, lack a firm and strenous advocate. (Monday, 
August, 13, 1794.) 


Deaths. Mrs. Hutchins, the wife of Mr. W. B. Hutchins, 
schoolmaster. Mr. Thomas Philips, sadler. (Tuesday, August 
19, 1794.)

graduated at Yale College; since which he has practiced the law 
in Georgia, and lately came to settle on this state. His lady and 
children had gone to visit their friends in New England. His 
father is pastor of the congregation at Coventry, Connecticut, 
and brother to governor Huntington. (Friday, August 22, 1794.) 

Died. On the 20th instant. Mathias Leopoldus Stupich, doctor 
of Physic: being perfectly sensible of his approaching dissolution, 
he resigned to his creator's will with that fortitude becoming a 
christian. His remains were deposited according to the Roman 
Catholic rites, of which denomination he was a worthy member, 
in the Roman Catholic church-yard. — On Thursday night, Mr. 
Robert Jones, of New- Jersey. — And Mr. James Wakefield, of this 
city. (Saturday August 23, 1794.)

A power of attorney, dated January 12, 1688, was executed by 
Capt. William Davis, of Barbadoes, gent., to "my Trusty & 
loveing son in law Cap n Rob* Gibbs of the province of Carolina" 
to "aske demand require and recover and receive of and from 
y e right Hon ble James Colletion of Carolina Esqr full satisfaction 
for one full Quarter part of a Ketch formerly Called y e Mary Ketch 
of Carolina of About fifty Tuns." It is recorded on page 117 in 
a volume of "Records of the Court of Ordinary of the Province 
of South Carolina, 1672-1692," in the office of the Historical 
Commission of South Carolina at Columbia. This would seem to 
establish the fact that Capt. (afterwards Governor) Gibbes had 
married the daughter of Capt. William Davis. — A. S. Salley, Jr. 


The South Carolina and American General Gazette for August 
7, 1767, gives an early example of the use of the term "Cracker" 
as applied to the uneducated classes. — " CharlesTown, August 7. 
Letters from Silver Bluff, on Savannah river, dated on tuesday 
last week, inform us, that a number of the people called Crackers, 
who live above Augusta, in the Province of Georgia, had gone in 
a hostile manner, to the Indian town and settlement at Okenee, 
where, on their arrival finding only one old Indian man, all the 
others being out hunting, they plundered the village of everything 
of any value that they could carry of, and then burnt every house 

in it " This item in detail was reprinted in the London 

Chronicle, Oct. 27, 1767, according to information furnished by 
A. B. Andrews, Esq, of Fayetteville, N. C, long a member of 
this Society. 

The South Carolina Gazette for September 26, 1778 gives another 
article in which the word is used in the same sense. It is to be 
found in a long communication addressed to "Every Freeholder 
in the Province," and is signed "A Freeholder of Goose Creek," 
to which has been added in ink the initials "J:M:k:e", probably 



intended for John M'Kenzie. In discussing the Legislature's 
attempt to deal with the Regulators the writer says: "There is 
an absurdity in the bill which must strike the brain of a Cracker." 


"The honorable the commons House of Assemble of this Province 
have requested of Thomas Lynch, Christopher Gadsden and John 
Rutledge Esqs that they will sit for their pictures; which are to 
be drawn at full length and preserved in the assembly room as a 
testimony of public regard for those gentlemen, and that the 
rememberance of the signal service they have done their country, 
as a committee from this province at the congress held at New York 
in October last may be transmitted to and remembered by pos- 
terity; the expence whereof is to be defrayed by the province." —

Historical and Genealogical 


VOL. XXII OCTOBER, 1921 No. 4 

Compiled by Mabel L. Webber 

In compiling this tentative genealogy, for there are numerous 
gaps and no attempt is made to extend it beyond the beginning 
of the nineteenth century, the notes of the late M. Alston Read, 
Esq., have been used in addition to the researches of the compiler. 
Mr. A. S. Salley, Jr., has also been of great assistance in making 
abstracts from documents in the Office of the Historical 

There were seemingly two families here in South Carolina, with 
the name of Hearne, Hern, Hearn, or Hyrne, spelled indifferently 
in the records, but with a careful distinction made wherever a 
signature is found. 

The earliest mention of the name yet found is that of Peter 
Hearne, who was a member of the parliament elected by the free- 
men of Carolina April 20, 1672 1 and who received a warrant for 400 
acres of land October 26, 1672. 2 He had a grant for land near 
James Town; and December 30, 1676 had warrant for 780 acres; 
March 3, 1677, he had a warrant for one town lot in Oyster Point; 
May 18, 1678, another warrant for 140 acres; as Peter Hearne, Sr., 
he had a warrant for 10 acres near Jamestown 5th October 1681, 
and continued to receive warrants as late as 9th June 1688. 3

July 9, 1681, Capt. William Davis of Barbadoes, executed a power 
of attorney to his "trusty friend Mr. Peter Hearne Gent, of the 
Province of Carolina" (Misc. records, Office Hist. Commission). 

Peter Hearne, Jr., Mary Hearne, Bridget Hearne, and Richard 
Hearne had warrants for 280 acres of land in September 1677. 
Jonathan Drake and John Hearne had warrant for 500 acres in 
August 1709. 4 

George Hearne had several warrants between 1699 and 1706, 
and was called Capt. George Hearne in 1711; he is apparently the 
Capt. Hearne who commanded a company during the Spanish and 
French invasion in 1706. 5 

Peter Hearne, Sr., of James Island made his will (now missing), 
in December, 1688, and appointed his wife Jane and his seven 
children executors; he died before January 17, 1694/5, for on that 
date an act of Assembly was passed, enabling Edward Drake and 
James Witter, both of James Island, in right of their wives, two 
of the executors of Peter Hearne deceased, to sell a town lot in 
CharlesTown, no. 15. 6 The executors of the will being incapaci- 
tated for "want of age." James Witter seems to have been a 

Peter Hearne, late of "Carolina beyond the seas" died on 
board the Royal ship Monmouth, and administration was granted 
January 2, 1695/6 to his relict Joane Hearne. 7 

Bridget Martin of St. Giles, Cripplegate, widow, appoints 
Edward Loughton of Carolina her attorney to receive from John 
Child of Carolina, carpenter, and his wife Jone, formerly known 
as Jone Hearne, all money which said Jone Child alias Heanre 
had received for 52 gross of buttons being the goods of the above 
Bridget Martin received for her use; dated March 5th 1 700/1. 8 

An Edith Hyrne was a witness to the will of Mary Cross, the 
Quaker preacher, August 28, 1696. 9 Thomas Hasfort was ap- 
pointed guardian of John Hearne, minor son of John Hearne 
deceased 5 th February, 1718/9; and John Hearne, minor son of

John Hearne deceased aged 14 years and upwards, petitioned 
12 January, 1724, that Thomas Fairchild be made his guardian. 10 
John Hern had a grant August 28, 1701, for 225 acres in Berkley 
County, formerly laid out to Peter Hern deceased, bounding on 
Wm. Chapman, James Witter, Edward Westberry and Joane 
Pulford, now in possession of James Markiss, and on Wm. Carlisle 
(Grant book, 1694-1739 Hist. Comm.) John Hearne of James 
Island, hat-maker, aged 68 years, ■ 'oath according to the form 
his profession" made his deposition concernig Mrs. Eleanor 
Wilkins and her children 27 February, 1745; this John Hearne, 
of James Island, hat-maker, "being aged" made his will 27 
September, 1743, proved 27 November, 1745; mentions son 
Peter Hearne; grandson John Hearne, son of Peter; daughter 
Elizabeth Witter deceased; son-in-law Thomas Witter; grand- 
children, Elizabeth, Thomas, James and Mary Witter; daughter 
Mary Holmes alias Frier and her children, William, John, Peter, 
and Daniel Holmes, and Ruth Fryer (sic); grand-daughter Ann 
Hearne. 11 

There has not been enough data found to show the exact rela- 
tionship of the people mentioned above, but they seem to have 
consistently spelled their name Hearne, some of them were Quakers, 
and they seem to have lived on James Island or in that neighbor- 
hood; there has been nothing found which shows any connection 
with the family of Hyrne with which we are now dealing. 


Edward Hyrne, Esq., was commissioned by the Lords Pro- 
prietors to be Naval officer of the Province of Carolina, 11th 
December, 1708. 12 He does not seem to have come out to serve 
in that office, for Nathaniel Sale Or Sayle, was appointed his 
deputy February 9, 1709/10. On February 28, 1710/11, a letter 
from Arthur Middleton was received by the Proprietors, requesting 
a commission as Naval officer; inquiry was ordered to be made 
of Mr. Hyrne, "if he can go for Carolina," if not then Mr. Middle- 
ton to have the appointment; Middleton was appointed June 13, 
1711. 13

On January 14, 1709/10, Mr. Edward Hyrne of London, Gentle- 
man and Elizabeth his wife, constituted Richard Berresford and 
Nathaniel Sale, Esqrs. of South Carolina, to be their attorneys 
in said province of South Carolina. (Book 1709-19, page 82-83, 
Hist. Comm.) 

An Edward Hearne, or Hyrne, was in South Carolina before 
1703, for in that year John Bonee had a warrant for land bounding 
on Edward Hearn, and in 1706, Arthur Middleton had a warrant 
for 440 acres between John Bonee, Edward Hearne, George Smith, 
Nicholas Bennett, and John Berrenger. 14 On 6th May, 1704, 
Ralph Izard made a motion that the House take into consideration 
the loss Mr. Edward Hearne had lately sustained by his house 
being burned, and motions was made that certain concessions be 
made him (Journal Common House Assembly Mss.). There has 
not been enough material found to show if this Edward Hearne, 
was the Edward Hyrne, naval officer, who was in London in 1709, 
nor just when the family we are dealing with, arrived. 

Edward Hyrne of the county of Norfolk, merchant, is said, 
from a record found in a Hyrne family bible, imprint date 1706, 
to have married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Drayner Massingberd 
of the County of Lincoln, knight; this is supported by the names 
found in the Hyrne family in South Carolina. According to 
Burke, 15 Sir Drayner Massingberd, of Ormsby, County of Lincoln, 
married first an heiress of the Burrell family, had no issue by her, 
inherited her estate, and his son by his second marriage was 
Burrell Massingberd, sheriff of Huntington in 1707, who in turn 
had sons William Burrell Massingberd, who succeeded his father 
in 1728, and died in 1802; also Francis Burrell Massingberd; these 
two, William Burrell Massingberd, and Francis Burrell Massing- 
berd, are mentioned as cousins in the will of Burrell Massingberd 
Hyrne of S. C, dated 1758. (Probate Court, Charleston, S. C.) 

No will or inventory of the elder Edward Hyrne has yet been 
found here, nor any for his wife Elizabeth, who apparently lived 
after 1725, for in that year Henry Hyrne, and Elizabeth Hyrne 
widow, purchased lands, as will be shown further on; an Edward 
Hyrne was a member of the assembly in 1716, 16 but this was 
probably Capt. Edward Hyrne, a son of Edward Hyrne, Esq.

for his second wife.

Barbara Smith (1696-17—) daughter of Thomas 
Smith, Second Landgrave and his first wife, Anna 
Cornelia [van Myddah?]; said Barbara had appar- 
ently died before 1738, for she is not mentioned in 
the will of her father, who there calls Col. Edward 
Hyrne his son-in-law. 17 

4. iii. Burrell Massingberd Hyrne, born 1708 or earlier; died 

without issue between October 1, 1757, and January

Mrs. Poyas, in Olden Time in Carolina, page 107, gives a differ- 
ent will evidently made at a later date 1776, and not properly 
executed since it was not recorded, the devisees are the same, but 
she mentions them by their married names, and adds Barbara 
Screven to her list of grand-children; 

Mary Hyrne and Thomas Smith had issue:

Edward Hyrne (Edward 1), born 1694 or earlier; died between 
1750 and 1758; married before 1715, Barbara Smith, born July 6, 
1697, daughter of Thomas Smith second Landgrave, by his first 
wife, Anna Cornelia, thus being a sister-in-law to her step-mother, 
Mary Hyrne Smith. The will of James Lawson "late of Carolina, 
now of Maryland" dated 4 February, 1715/16 22 mentions his 
"knavy" John Lawson, his "cozen" Ann Hyrne, wife Ann Lawson, 
father-in-law Landgrave Thomas Smith, Executors, relations and 
friends Landgrave Thomas Smith, Mr. Edward Hyrne, and 
Mr. George Smith; the witnesses were James Strawbridge, Samuel 
Morris, Mary Smith, Barbara Hyrne, Justina Smith, and Thomas 
Smith; proved by Landgrave Thomas Smith, and Mary his wife. 
James Lawson seems to have married Ann Smith, a daughter of 
Landgrave Thomas Smith by his first wife, and after Lawson's 
death, she married Benj. Waring. 

Justina Moore, a daughter of Thomas Smith and his first wife, 
full sister to Barbara Smith Hyrne, made her will in Philadelphia, 
14 April, 1743; she describes herself as the relict of Mr. John 
Moore, late of Cape Fear; mentions sons James and John, and 
daughter Rebecca Moore; her late father Landgrave Thomas 
Smith of South Carolina; her brothers-in-law Maurice Moore, 
Roger Moore, and Edward Hyrne; sisters-in-law Mary Clifford 
and Rebecca Dry; niece Elizabeth Hyrne; Aunt Sarah [Smith?], 
Brothers-in-law Maurice Moore, Roger Moore, Edward Hyrne 
and eldest son James Moore, all of Cape Fear to be executors. 
Proved at Philadelphia, August 20, 1743. 23 We have no date for 
the death of Barbara Hyrne, wife of Col. Edward Hyrne; in Olden 
Times in Carolina, page 85, there is a letter from Col. Henry 
Hyrne dated Hyrneham, August 1, 1738, written to his sister 
Mary Smith after the death of her husband; in it he mentions the 
recent death of his son Edward in his prime, the illness of his 
son Henry; gives advice about the management of the plantations, 
and speaks of his sons but not by names; there is no mention of 
his wife who lived after 1720, 24 but we do not know how much

Edward Hyrne was probably the Edward Hyrne, member of 
Assembly 1716, and lived in South Carolina until after 1724; on 
25th October, 1720, Edward Hyrne, Elizabeth Hyrne, and Bar- 
bara Hyrne witnessed a transfer of land from Landgrave Thomas 
Smith and Mary his wife to their son-in-law John Moore, all of 
St. James Goose Creek. 25 On 12th June, 1724, Capt. Edward 
Hyrne was one of the appraisors of the estate of Col. Thomas 
Smith of Goose Creek. (Probt. Ct. 1722-24, p. 250.) Edward 
Hyrne was a Justice of the Peace North Carolina in 1734, 1736, 
1739 and 1750; apparently from the title he is mentioned by, he 
was also a Colonel in the militia. 26 

James Ellerton, the schoolmaster in the Smith family, at St. 
James Goose Creek, whose journal Mrs. Poyas quotes in Olden 
Times in Carolina, (p. 183), mentions that on "Tuesday November 
5, 1745, Col. Edward Hyrne's horses came here from Cape Fear 
10th, He came himself and there was a joyful meeting. Decem- 
ber 2, Madam went to town. [Mrs. Smith] 5th. She came up. 
7th. Her Brother Col. Edward Hyrne came again from town, not 
meeting with a passage to go home to Cape Fear. 22 Col. 
Edward Hyrne went to town in order once more to go home, and 
was to sail the next day — he came alone it was many years since 
he left us." 

Col. Edward Hyrne was dead in 1758, when his brother Burrell 
Massingberd Hyrne made his will. 

We have no accurate list of his children; so far as we have found, 
they were as follows, order unknown: 

1. Edward Hyrne died 1738, near maturity, unmarried. 

2. Ann Hyrne, born before 1716, called "Cozen" in the will 

of James Lawson, who married her aunt, Ann Smith. 

3. Elizabeth Hyrne, mentioned as niece in the will of her 

aunt, Justina Moore in 1743; married January 26, 
1747/8, Daniel Britton of Craven County (Parish 
Register of Pr. Frederick), Daniel Britton made his 
will 8 June, 1748, proved 16 June, 1749; mentions 
his wife Elizabeth and unborn child; mentions in 
list of negroes one at "the ferry" and one at Cape 
Fear; leaves Capt. Francis Britton, George Hyrne

and wife Elizabeth, his executors. 27 The child was 
a son, Daniel Britton, who died in infancy before 
July 24, 1751. 28 

The Britton nephews and niece, mentioned in the 
will of Henry Hyrne below, were apparently the 
children of Capt. Francis Britton who died in 1766, 
since they are the same as named in his will. 29 Ap- 
parently there was another Hyrne-Britton marriage 

4. George Hyrne died before 1772, apparently without issue. 

5. Henry Hyrne, of New Hanover, Province of North Caro- 

lina; he made his will 29 September, 1773, proved 
26 October, 1773; Henry Walters, plantation in

Col. Edward Hyrne," also land which came to said 
Henry Hyrne by the death of his brother George; 
niece Elizabeth Walters; nephews Joseph and George 
Walters; nephew Moses Britton; niece Mary Britton; 
nephews Henry Britton and Francis Britton; ex- 
presses appreciation of the kindness of the above 
nephews in coming to see him and staying with him; 
states that for 12 years he has been prevented by 
illness from attending to his affairs, his good friend 
Frederick Jones, having attended to same for him; 
speaks of having gone to Philadelphia for his health; 
mentions god-daughter Elizabeth, daughter of Fred- 
erick Jones; rest of estate to niece Mary Britton, and 
nephews Moses, Francis, and Henry Britton; his 
negro man Cato, to be sent with news of his death 
to nephews Moses and Francis Britton, and his will

{To be continued) 



This Society has received for reviewing, from the publishers, 
J. B. Lippincott Company, through Hammond's Book Store, a 
copy of Historic Houses of South Carolina, by Hariette Kershaw 

The book is handsomely finished in the same style as the 
Smith book, Dwelling Houses of Charleston, and contains one 
hundred full page illustrations, most of them photographs. The 
pictures constitute one of its permanent values; several of them 
being from old prints or paintings of houses of interest, now no 
longer in existence. 

The book contains a great deal of material of interest and 
entertainment, and adds in many ways to the literature about the 
State, especially the coast country. The style is easy and anec- 
dotal; the necessary historical details are interspersed with many 
personal stories long current in print and conversation, and well 
worth preserving. The material is taken chiefly from printed 
sources and family tradition. Unfortunately much of it was not 
verified, and the book will have to be very carefully used as an 
authority, for it contains many errors, some of them concerning 
historical characters, which could have been avoided by consulting 
easily accessible authorities. 

Most of the genealogy and personal accounts should not be 
taken as they stand without verifying; even in the case of persons 
who have lived so recently as Major Theodore G. Barker and 
his wife, formerly Miss Louisa King, daughter of Judge Mitchell 
King, the error is made of stating that Major Barker married 
"Miss Louisa Fitzsimmons;" Major Barker's sister married 
Dr. Christopher FitzSimons, which probably caused the confusion. 

The house now used as the residence of the bishop of the Roman 
Catholic Church is stated (p. 10) to have been built by a Mr. Bel- 
linger; the records show that it was begun by Ralph Izard of 
Fair Spring, was unfinished at the time of his death; in the division 
of his estate, it fell to his daughter Louisa Charlotte, who died 
unmarried in 1825; it was sold in 1829 to Col. Thomas Pinckney, 



and in 1866, his daughter Rosetta Ella, the widow of Ralph Stead 
Izard sold it to the Rt. Rev. Patrick N. Lynch. {Dwelling Houses 
of Charleston, p. 250.) 

The account of Henry Laurens (pp. 42-44) is woefully mixed; 
the dates concerning Laurens and those of James Crokatt as 
given by Dr. Wallace in his Henry Laurens seems to have exchanged 
places; from Mrs. Leiding's book, it would appear that Henry 
Laurens was a merchant in London in 1739, when according to 
the birth date which is given, he was only five years old! Other 
dates are also given which make him seem even more wonderfully 
precocious. As a matter of fact, he was born in 1724. A correct 
account of the escape from being buried alive, when an infant of 
one year, of Martha, daughter of Henry Laurens and afterwards 
the wife of Dr. David Ramsay, will be found in the Wallace life 
of Laurens, and also in detail in Dr. Ramsay's memoir of his wife. 

On page 76, Josia Quincy, Jr., of Massachusetts, who visited 
here in 1773, and kept a journal often quoted, and several times 
printed, recently in full by the Massachusetts Historical Society, 
is given as "Sir Joshua Quincy." 

The date of the settlement of South Carolina is frequently 
anticipated by several years, as on page 132, when Anthony 
Cordes is made to arrive and settle on French Santee in 1665, some 
twenty years before his actual arrival. 

In the account of Boone Hall, long in hands of the descendants 
of Major John Boone, who came out with the first fleet, and 
received a grant to the Boone Hall land before 1695, the state- 
ment is made that a Daniel Boone is buried in the family burying 
grounds. There is an unmarked brick tomb on this plantation, 
and the parish register of Christ Church shows that Major Thomas 
Boone was buried on his plantation in 1749, but the name of 
Daniel does not appear in any line of the family so far as the 
records show. 

On page 207, Middleton Place, under the head "Middleton 
Gardens" is disposed of in four lines as the "old Pinckney place;" 
it had several owners before Henry Middleton married in 1741, 
the only child of John Williams, who had acquired the lands 
composing it. Thus it came into the Middleton family, and has 
remained in the hands of Middleton descendants ever since, but 
at no time in its history, was it ever owned by a Pinckney. 


The accounts of the Pinckney family is also confused. Charles 
Pinckney 1757-1824, who was Governor of South Carolina, minister 
to Spain, and who made a draft of the Constitution, was not a 
son of Chief Justice Pinckney and Eliza Lucas, but was a grand- 
nephew, being a son of Colonel Charles Pinckney (1731-1784) 
and Frances Brewton, a grandson of Major William Pinckney 
(1703-1766) and Ruth Brewton. Major Wm. Pinckney was a 
brother of Charles Pinckney, the Chief Justice. General Thomas 
was not the author of the much quoted "millions for defence' , 
phrase, but his brother General Charles Coatesworth Pinckney, 
on whose tombstone in St. Michael's churchyard the sentence is 
to be found. 

The account of the Middleton family is as confused as that of 
the Pinckneys. On page 24, John Middleton should be given 
as the owner of Crowfield, not his brother Thomas. Page 25, 
Henry A. Middleton and Henry Middleton of Ashville, North 
Carolina, were wholly different persons, first cousins once re- 
moved. Henry Middleton had no connection with Crowfield. 

Arthur Middleton was the father, not the grandfather of Gov- 
ernor Henry Middleton, and Henry Middleton of the Revolution 
was his grandfather, not his great grandfather. 

Thomas Ferguson of the Revolution (p. 54), was the son of 
James Ferguson of Goose Creek by his wife Ann Barker, daughter 
of Thomas Barker and half-sister of John Parker. He was thus 
of one of the best families which then existed in the low country and 
went to Parkers Ferry with his uncle John Parker. His subse- 
quent life shows that he was a man of education and by no means 
the poor unlettered boy to be inferred from Dr. Johnson's account. 

Thomas Ferguson of the Revolution (p. 56), was not the founder 
but the grandson of Thomas Ferguson, the founder of the family. 

Among further errors to be noted, are the following: 

The statement that McDuffie fought a duel with "Colonel 
Cunningham," should be "Colonel Cumming." It is well known 
that he fought two duels with Colonel Cumming of the well known 
family of Augusta, Georgia. Again, General Gonzales did not 
marry "Mary Elliott," but her sister "Harriet Rutledge Elliott" 
daughter of Hon. William Elliott. Mary married Mr. Andrew 
Johnstone. Thomas Rhett Smith, the father of Mrs. William 
Elliott, was born in 1769 and not in 1800. We have never heard 


of any brother of Mrs. Elliott who grew to manhood named 
"Thomas Rhett Smith, Jr." Again what is known now as "The 
Point" at Beaufort, South Carolina, at one time called "Blacks 
Point" was not built upon until after the death of "Tuscarora 
John Barnwell" and Washington and Carteret Streets do not extend 
to the Point. The "John Barnwell" who married Sarah Bull, was 
the great-grandson not grandson of "Tuscarora" John. The 
oldest house in Beaufort was certainly not built in 1690, as the 
town was not directed to be built until 1712. Only a part of 
Beaufort District was known as the "Indian Land." The house 
built by Captain Edward Barnwell, now occupied by Mrs. O'Dell, 
so far from being built "with substantial wings" and a "very large 
piazza" to accommodate his large family, did not receive those 
additions until many years after his death. Mr. James Elliott, 
never became a bishop, it was his brother, Stephen Elliott who 
became bishop of Georgia. No smoking dinner was left by any 
family at Beaufort at the time of its evacuation in November, 
1861, and was devoured by the incoming army, for no part, either 
of the navy or army of the United States came to the town until 
several days after the evacuation. 

In spite of the many errors, -some of them serious, the book 
serves a very valuable purpose; it will awaken an interest and 
pride in the old places, and help to preserve the personal and 
traditional accounts of many communities. 

The type of early country house which remains, show that the 
plantation homes as a rule, were not as handsome or as stately 
as those of Virginia; possibly because Charleston was the social 
center, and most of the low-country planters had houses in town, 
and for the provincial and later period, Charleston houses were 
very fine. Very many of the best of the early country houses 
were destroyed during the later period of the War between the 
States, those along the Ashley River having been, from all accounts, 
very handsome, most of them built of brick, but enough remain 
to show the general type of the country house, which seems to 
have been chiefly built of wood, and to have been a plain square 
house of from four to eight rooms with a central hall.
